This report provides a snapshot of nuclear safety and radiation protection at the AREVA group’s nuclear facilities. It also contains aspects on radiation protection for our services activities. It is based on the inspection program and analyses of the General Inspectorate, performed by a network of specialists and technical experts.
The group operates in every segment of the nuclear fuel cycle and in the design and construction of nuclear reactors and related services. AREVA’s Nuclear Safety Charter lays down the group’s safety principles: flawless organization, targeted and effective actions, and transparent communications exemplified by the publication of an annual report on the status of safety in the nuclear facilities of the entire group. These requirements apply throughout the lifecycle of the facilities, from their design to their construction, operation and dismantling, and include service activities.
The group strives to instill a culture of safety in anyone involved in nuclear operations. Externally as well, the group communicates widely to provide information on safety and satisfy strong social expectations.
The Nuclear Safety Charter is a formal statement of commitments that aims for the highest levels of safety throughout the facility lifecycle.
AREVA is committed to keeping personnel exposure to radiation as low as reasonably achievable. This applies to both employees and subcontractors in all countries.
Improving risk management is an ongoing effort at AREVA. Its principles include taking human and organizational factors into account in every phase of operations.
The surest way to prevent incidents and accidents is to identify, track and analyze events, deviations and anomalies, and to reap and share lessons learned from them.
