Nuclear safety can be understood as accident prevention in nuclear installations, via its systems and its human resources, and the mitigation of risks and consequences if an accident should occur.
Nuclear facilities rely on a robust electrical system to power primary and back-up systems required to safely respond to a wide variety of challenging events.
Reactor components and structures degrade by exposure to heat, environmental conditions and radiation. It is vital to understand ageing processes to ensure that safety criteria continue to be met.
Risk assessments are used to determine the probability of harmful events at a nuclear plant. They are valuable for determining the relative benefit and better selection of safety enhancements.
The fuel for a nuclear reactor is both the source of the fission energy that is used to produce electricity and the source of radioactive material during an accident.
The facilities associated with nuclear fuel from mining to fabrication to post-irradiation management have some specific safety concerns that are different from those of nuclear reactors.
