  • Safety in Nuclear Power Plants
    for Civil Nuclear Security OCNS They are not just responsible for ensuring that each plant fully complies with security legislation within the confines of the plant but also for the transportation of any radioactive materials Each plant therefore must have an approved security plan in addition to any safety legislation it must also adhere to Access to nuclear power plants is strictly regulated with armed police who are part of the Civil Nuclear Constabulary present at all of the UK s nuclear installations They are responsible for the protection of all nuclear materials both contained within the site and whilst in transit What About the Threat of Terrorism Against Nuclear Power Plants One of the main reasons why potential terrorists have not targeted nuclear reactors apart from the fact that they are so robust in the way they are designed these days is that any damage caused as a result of terrorist activity would not result in any significant release of radioactivity which could not be contained within the plant itself In fact thorough scientific research has shown that the reality of a major disaster occurring as a result of a terrorist attack would be far less than a similar attack on say a coal fired power station Evacuation of a nuclear installation after any kind of attack or other major malfunction which would result in any kind of release of radioactive material could be carried out at walking pace and although this would cause disruption to the site itself and could also possibly affect neighbouring residential areas where people might be temporarily displaced should radioactive material be released into the atmosphere the consequences with regards to modern day nuclear reactors are far more likely to result in economic losses as opposed to presenting health issues as any such release of radioactive material is likely to remain well within the plant itself Previous Page Next Page You might also like How to Transport Cash and Valuables Safely Construction Site Safety Landfill Waste Management Safety Safety When Working in Mines Dock Workers Safety Share Your Story Join the Discussion or Seek Advice This is really interesting stuff I want to become a Health and Safety Inspector Lois Carpenter 3 May 11 11 45 AM Share Your Story Join the Discussion or Seek Advice Title Miss Ms Mrs Mr Dr Rev d Prof Other never shown Firstname never shown Surname never shown Email never shown Nickname shown Comment Validate Enter word Topics Work Safety Law Case Studies Ask Our Experts Avoiding Accidents Work with Substances Transport High Risk Workplaces Health Issues Safe Environment Working with People HR Matters Site Information Latest Comments WorkplaceSafetyAdvice Re Dealing with Employee Theft EvertonBoy Your Question My brother has stole 100 from the supermarket where he works and all I wanna no is what will happen 16 February 2016 Scole Re Dealing with Employee Theft I m am pregant can my emplpyerget rid of me because I am on a temporary contract 16 February 2016 EvertonBoy Re
