Leading Fatigue Management System Supports NRC 10CFR 26 Regulations for Nuclear Industry
Livonia, Mich., July 7, 2009 – WorkForce Software, Inc., the leader in workforce management solutions for organizations with complex policies and compliance concerns, announces that Day & Zimmermann, a global leader in diversified technical solutions for government and commercial customers, has selected EmpCenter® Fatigue Management to manage its compliance with NRC fitness-for-duty regulations.
“Safety is our number one value, so we are certainly pleased to be among the first maintenance and construction companies in the nuclear market to comply with the NRC 10CFR 26 regulations,” said Mike McMahon, president of Day & Zimmermann’s Power Services Group. “WorkForce Software’s Fatigue Management system is a proven tool and widely used in the nuclear industry and has the flexibility to handle our unique requirements and those of our customers. We look forward to a successful partnership with WorkForce Software.”
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s (NRC) regulation 10 CFR 26 is a comprehensive set of rules that defines limits for work hours scheduling, break constraints, periodic employee assessments, and annual reporting requirements for key employee positions, including those in operations, chemistry, safety, and security. The WorkForce Fatigue Management solution, which has been deployed by nearly 70-percent of the nuclear power companies in America, leverages EmpCenter’s sophisticated rules engine, so it is able to manage complex NRC requirements without custom programming.
“We pride ourselves on being able to handle an organization’s most complex work rule and compliance issues, and the NRC requirements are among the toughest we have seen,” said Kevin Choksi, president and CEO of WorkForce Software. “It adds to that pride when a company of Day & Zimmermann’s global stature selects us to support their most complex and demanding workforce challenges.”
