Abstract: Our aim was to apply participative development of safety in the highly proceduralized and strictly managed field of nuclear industry. We used the Collaborative Work Process Analysis method to enhance cooperation in and create a shared view of maintenance across and among the organizational units of a nuclear power plant. We found that this analysis had the potential to promote the participative development of safety and that participative methods are needed in the nuclear industry to facilitate safer and more smoothly flowing work.
