NOCN Job Cards, part of the NOCN Group, provides proof that an individual has achieved the required training, or theory and practical tests, and competence-based qualifications for the type of work they carry out, primarily in the U.K. construction industry. Each type of card issued represents different levels of testing or training and competence to operate specific equipment. There are numerous different roles in construction and each of these have different requirements to show competency. In this session hear how the firm implemented NFC-enabled cards to improve security by proving identity and competence, as well as reducing printing costs and plastics usage. Key takeaways: Learn how the cards have additional functionality beyond proof of identity and competence. Future uses, including the possibility of delivering training materials, measuring time and attendance and equipment track work logs.View PowerPoint PresentationSpeakerMark BucktonExecutive Director of Job Cards and Services - NOCN Job Cards, NOCN ServicesMark started in construction in 2005 managing a variety of projects and programmes. Mark managed the Exam Board, Cskills Awards, and transferred it to NOCN in August 2017 taking up the role of Head of Construction for the Organisation. He successfully purchased the CPCS Card Scheme. When it was transferred to NOCN Mark became the Executive Director of Job Cards and Services. This also covers the delivery of the Scaffolding industry card scheme CISRS.

Despite its potential for driving business value, RFID creates significant demands on an organization. This session explained how to minimize risks while increasing the likelihood of a well-executed project. From early-stage analysis through implementation, there are tools and methods that every corporate IT or project manager can use to ensure success.

In this presentation, the speaker describes the ARG-US (meaning watchful guardian) remote monitoring systems technology developed by Argonne National Laboratory (Argonne) under the auspices of the U.S. Department of Energy Packaging Certification Program, Office of Packaging and Transportation, Office of Environmental Management. Over the past 12 years, Argonne has developed, demonstrated, and deployed two patented technology systems: the smart drum technology and the remote area modular monitoring (RAMM)/TRAVELER, with the goal of enhancing the safety, security, and safeguards (3S) of nuclear and other radioactive materials, including spent nuclear fuel and high-level waste during storage, transportation and disposal. Highlights are provided for selected use cases of ARG-US remote monitoring systems in critical facilities, tracking and monitoring nuclear cargos during vehicle and rail shipments, hands-on exercises in training courses on transport security, and a brief discussion of future directions. Key takeaways: Learn how the use of ARG-US remote monitoring systems technology to enhance safety and security of other risk-significant materials Learn how Argonne National Laboratory and DOE are transferring the technology for commercialization.SpeakerDr. Yung LiuSenior Nuclear Engineer and Manager of the Packaging Certification and Life Cycle Management Group, Decision & Infrastructure Sciences Division - Argonne National Laboratory Yung Y. Liu, ScD, Nuclear Engineering, MIT, is Senior Nuclear Engineer and Manager of the Packaging Certification and Life Cycle Management Group, Decision & Infrastructure Sciences Division, Argonne National Laboratory. He is responsible for managing a portfolio of research and development programs supported by the US Department of Energy, National Nuclear Security Administration, Nuclear Regulatory Commission and Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) programs with industry, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the central Research Institute of Electric Power Industry, Japan. He interacts frequently with staff at government agencies, industries, other national laboratories, and the IAEA on technical and regulatory issues related to the safety, security, and safeguards of nuclear and other radioactive hazardous materials, including spent nuclear fuel and high-level waste. Dr. Liu has over 35 years of experience as principal investigator, theorist, experimenter, innovator, educator, and manager of various materials and engineering programs related to nuclear fission, fusion, and advanced fossil energy systems. More recently in the last decade, he has been leading the development and applications of the patented ARG-US (“The Watchful Guardian”) radiofrequency identification (RFID)/CommBox, Remote Area Modular Monitoring (RAMM)/TRAVELER systems technology for tracking and monitoring high-risk and high-value materials during storage and transportation, as well as in aging management and application of advanced surveillance technology for extended storage and transportation of spent nuclear fuel.
