This Module introduces the concept of nuclear safety, safety fundamentals, fundamental safety functions, and the concept of defence in depth. It further describes the international nuclear safety regime and the interface between nuclear safety and security. At the end it describes three major nuclear accidents, TMI from 1979, Chernobyl from 1986 and Fukushima from 2011.
Case studies are in the form of exercises which are to be performed by students divided into smaller working groups. Each group discusses safety culture deficiencies that contributed to three nuclear accidents described in the textbook. There are 12 multiple choice questions that he lecturer can use for the weekly exam.
The textbook contains 63 pages, and there are 156 transparencies for a 3-months course and 90 transparencies for a one-month course.
