BHI Energy Nuclear Radiological Services

Radiological and D&D Services

As the largest supplier of radiation protection services to North America for over 40 years, we have provided radiation protection and decontamination services to every operating nuclear power plant, every major Department of Energy (DOE) site closure project, and every commercial nuclear power plant decommissioning project in the United States.

Our executive team is comprised of experts with hands-on nuclear experience including former utility management and line supervision, radiation protection managers, radiological engineers and health physicists.  We understand the demands of the industry and have the expertise required to improve radiological safety performance for our customers.

BHI provides turnkey support, with the unique capacity to maintain all aspects of your radiation protection program.

  • Outages: We’ve supported more than 1,100 refueling outages, and routinely provide radiological personnel for more than 6,000 positions annually.
  • Projects: From project management to complete turnkey radiation protection programs, we support projects such as large component replacements, upgrades, remediation and decommissioning.
  • Routine Operations: We support routine operations with a cost-effective, full time workforce working alongside your facility personnel.

Operational Radiation Protection

RP outageOur services include the entire onboarding process including pre-hire screening, NRC-required background investigations, industry-required training and qualifications such as NUF and NANTel, as well as RP qualifications verification in accordance with client and ANSI standards.

Workforce Development

BHI recognized the potential for a workforce shortage in 1998. In response, we initiated a long term, multi-faceted resource pipeline development initiative along with our clients and industry representatives. Today, BHI is a leader in developing and seeking solutions to expand the number of radiation safety workers available to the industry. Our dedicated recruiting team is supported by a proprietary, custom integrated recruiting/resource management software (RRMS) system.
