What is nuclear safety?

The scope of nuclear safety and its regulation covers the whole of the nuclear fuel cycle. It is the achievement of proper operating conditions and the prevention or mitigation of accident consequences, resulting in protection of workers, the public and the environment from undue radiation hazards.
