We pride ourselves on our ability to deliver simple solutions to the nuclear industry's most complex challenges.
At NSG, we have a long and proud history of safely delivering cost-effective decommissioning, waste management and land remediation services for the nuclear industry. More recently, we have complemented our core capability with services such as problem definition, requirements engineering, obsolescence management and plant life extension. In addition to this, we also offer expertise in programme and supply chain management, giving our clients complete confidence that their projects are in safe hands.
From problem definition and strategy development through to land remediation, we are experts in each stage of the nuclear decommissioning project life cycle.
With 8,725 metres squared of work area, our technical facilities are specifically set up to deliver R&D and testing services to the UK nuclear industry.
Our laboratory, which can be found at our head office in Chorley, allows us to support our client’s development work in a cost-effective manner by carrying out scaled down, inactive work before moving to active work on site.
Our test rig halls house full-scale and prototype rigs to underpin technical solutions proposed by our clients. Based on the information provided through trials, our clients can move forward with confidence in their preferred option.
Our workshop facility is configured to carry out integrated works testing for modular equipment prior to deployment on site. Boasting a height of 20m and a 20-tonne crane, our workshop can house projects of any size.
We strive to not only meet but exceed our customers’ expectations by performing to the highest standards throughout our business.
We have an excellent safety record and are proactive in promoting safety culture throughout all activities at all NSG and client sites. In 2019, we were awarded the RoSPA Sector Award for Research and Development, which followed on from two consecutive President's Awards, another Sector Award for Research and Development in 2016 and eleven consecutive Gold Awards. As part of our commitment to continual improvement, we benchmarked ourselves against the best in industry in the British Safety Council (BSC) Five Star Audit in 2015 and were awarded Five Stars. Later that year, we were one of just 61 organisations worldwide that were awarded a BSC Sword of Honour for demonstrating excellence in the management of health and safety risks at work.
We have systems in place that are certificated to OHSAS 18001:2007 and are continuously reviewed and updated to ensure that we continue to meet all regulatory, legal and client requirements while improving our health and safety performance. All staff at all levels participate in safety walkrounds and senior managers participate in the audit programme as we constantly inspect, audit and measure our performance to identify where we can improve. Health and safety are key performance indicators within our business and we have an improvement programme which sets targets that continuously challenge our processes and procedures.
We are committed to providing the highest possible standard of service to all stakeholders. To ensure that this is achieved, we have systems in place that are certificated to ISO 9001:2015 and are continuously reviewed and updated to ensure that we continue to meet all regulatory, legal and client requirements while improving our health and safety performance. Senior managers participate in the inspection programme as we constantly audit and measure our performance to identify where we can improve.

We recognise our responsibility to preserve and protect the environment and are committed to continuously improving our environmental performance. We have systems in place that are certificated to ISO 14001:2015 and are continuously reviewed and updated to ensure that we continue to meet all regulatory and legal requirements while improving our environmental management. All work we undertake is assessed for environmental impact and, where that is the case, suitable controls are put in place to remove or minimise the impact. We also work with other stakeholders in the supply chain to help raise environmental awareness and to improve combined performance. Protection of the environment is a key performance indicator within our business and we have an improvement programme which sets targets that continuously challenge our processes and procedures.
At NSG, we take cyber security seriously and are proud to hold Cyber Essentials Plus certification. This accreditation demonstrates our ability to guard against the most common cyber threats and highlights our commitment to cyber security. In addition, we have also achieved the IASME Gold standard; an audited risk-based standard based on international best practices which includes aspects such as policies and procedures, physical security, staff awareness and data backup.
With more than 110 employees and 60 contractors across our sites, we have a huge variety of opportunities within our many departments working on diverse and innovative projects.
As a people-focused organisation, we have a range of benefits, policies and initiatives to suit everyone and we believe these are the driving factors in enabling our employees to deliver to their highest potential. Developing the skills and abilities of our employees is one of our priorities. We will support you in your career progression, giving encouragement and providing opportunities for you to develop.
