Fundamental to the successful operation of any nuclear site is a first-class safety culture that strives to continually improve in response to good industry practices and operating experience feedback. The first speaker will provide insight on some critical experiment accidents at Los Alamos in the 1940s, particularly with regards to how the lessons learned are equally applicable to nuclear criticality safety practices in the modern era. This will be followed by an informal panel discussion on other lessons learned over the past few decades, including an opportunity for audience questions.
