  • Defence Nuclear Waste Disposal in Russia: International Perspective

    Significant amounts of liquid and solid radioactive waste have been generated in Russia during the production of nuclear weapons, and there is an urgent need to find suitable ways to manage these wastes in a way that protects both the current population and future generations. This book contains contributions from pure and applied scientists ...

  • Effects of Deregulation on Safety

    Because of the dramatic changes that economic deregulation has caused in the electricity industry and the widespread social concern about nuclear power safety, Effects of Deregulation on Safety is extremely timely. Effects of Deregulation on Safety uses case studies of the effects of deregulation on the U.S. air and rail industries and the United ...

  • Fundamental Safety Principles - IAEA Safety Standards Series No. SF-1

    This publication states the fundamental safety objective and ten associated safety principles, and briefly describes their intent and purpose. The fundamental safety objective — to protect people and the environment from harmful effects of ionizing radiation — applies to all circumstances that give rise to radiation risks. The safety principles ...

  • Safer Complex Industrial Environments: A Human Factors Approach

    Safety management must be proactive as well as reactive and in complex industrial systems preparedness requires a sophisticated understanding of human factors as they relate to the functional characteristics of socio-technology systems. With a particular focus on nuclear power plants in Japan, this book provides a state-of-the-art account on how ...

  • Man-Made and Natural Radioactivity in Environmental Pollution and Radiochronology

    The basic goal of this book is to examine the complex state of radioactivity in the environment, including its sources and applications. In principle, there are two sources of environmental radioactivity, namely man-made and natural. The authors of this book set out to analyze mainly empirical aspects of the activities of both groups. On one hand, ...

  • Chernobyl

    As the debate about the environmental cost of nuclear power and the issue of nuclear safety continues, a comprehensive assessment of the Chernobyl accident, its long-term environmental consequences and solutions to the problems found, is timely.
