Triple Bar Nuclear New Build Sites (TBNNBS)
The Triple Bar Nuclear New Build Sites (TBNNBS) is a ‘three bar’ training course delivered online or via classroom. The Triple Bar Nuclear New Build Sites (TBNNBS) Training has been developed in collaboration with EDF Energy to provide individuals with a basic level of understanding about some of the important aspects about working on a nuclear new build site.
Course Overview

The TBNNBS training is aimed at individuals who will require unescorted access for working on a nuclear new build site approved by UK Government for the construction of new civil nuclear power stations. For those contracted to Hinkley Point C the training is included in the one day EDF Energy induction process so is not mandatory. However, for those that wish to prepare and ensure success, it is recommended to complete this training before the induction.

The TBES course comprises of three 'bars':

Bar One: Basic Common Induction

* Describe your role in the security arrangements that exist for working on a nuclear site.

Bar Two: Basic nuclear in context 
* Explain the reasons behind the UK’s decision to build new nuclear power stations.
* Outline the main improvements in the nuclear power industry the last 50 years.
* List the key events that brought about those changes.
* Explain what is meant by ‘latent error’.
Bar Three: Basic nuclear behaviours

* Explain the features of a strong safety culture.
* State the actions required following an ‘event’ or ‘near-miss’.
* Recognise safe and unsafe ‘behaviours’ and ‘situations’.
