Nuclear Safety Case Authorship

Nuclear safety case lead authors will apply their training and experience to bring together elements of the safety case, to provide clear and concise safety arguments to form a �fit for purpose� safety case. The safety case is crucial in providing the arguments for undertaking hazardous activities such as plant decommissioning, nuclear plant repair or outage and plant refueling. The safety case when it has been approved internally and assessed by the ONR will form the basis of how a specific activity is undertaken and from this detailed procedures will be developed.
