Fundamental to the successful operation of any nuclear site is a first class safety culture which strives to continually improve in response to good industry practices and operating experience feedback. Speakers will provide examples of either specific good practices and / or lessons learned at their site, following which an audience discussion will be initiated on alternative good practice and experiences in these areas.
