This paper describes a methodological approach aiming at supporting risk-informed management of fire situations at nuclear power plants: A conceptual framework has been developed for the analysis of the management as a co-operational whole. The development has been made by utilizing interdisciplinary expert group work in co-operation with Loviisa and Olkiluoto plants in Finland. The object of the analysis provided by the framework is the controllability of the fire situations from the co-operation point of view. The interaction of the responsible different parties in the accomplishment of the most important co-operational control tasks of the operational management is conceptualized. The approach takes a systemic view on the management by focusing on the interdependencies at the different parties' task interfaces. The framework provides a shared frame of reference that facilitates crossing the disciplinary boundaries and enhancing mutual understanding at the plants. The shared understanding of the co-operational factors that deteriorate the controllability of the situation and of the risk impact of these factors lays the basis for the development of riskinformed and integrated procedures and training for the parties.
