Nuclear Safety with Respect to Radioactive Waste Management Facilities

Event Scheduled: On Request
Learning Mode: Online
Language: English
(see more details below)

Course Description

Learn about the basics of nuclear safety: the basic safety approach, the safety functions and the underlying defense-in-depth principle. It will be discussed how a nuclear safety culture can be integrated and strengthened in the existing company culture. Safety requirements, design basics and best practice solutions of radioactive waste management facilities will be introduced. Furthermore, technologies for handling and conditioning will be explained. The second day of the course deals with the topics deterministic and probabilistic analysis. The participants will apply and compare the methodologies in practical application. Additionally, the risk assessment methodology Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA) will be introduced and exemplarily conducted based on a radioactive waste management facility case study. Learn in this course how to comply with mandatory safety requirements and profit from best practice examples and the technical experience of our trainers.
