Order issued to Stantec Consulting Inc.

Today, the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) announced that it had issued an order on May 25, 2018 to Stantec Consulting Ltd., a company based in Edmonton, Alberta that offers geotechnical, environmental, civil and materials engineering services. The company currently holds a CNSC licence authorizing it to possess, transfer, import, export, use and store portable nuclear gauges for the purposes of measuring compaction and moisture content in materials.

The order was issued following a CNSC field inspection in Laval, Quebec. The inspection identified non-compliances related to the security of a portable nuclear gauge used at the work site. The inspection also identified that the worker operating the portable nuclear gauge had not been adequately trained and was not following company procedures when conducting activities with nuclear gauges.

The order requires that the worker immediately cease using portable nuclear gauges until the licensee can demonstrate, to the CNSC’s satisfaction, that the worker is adequately trained to ensure the security and transport of portable nuclear gauges in the field.

The CNSC requires these measures in order to protect the health and safety of workers, the public and the environment.
