Nuclear Criticality Safety
NCSD provides communication among nuclear criticality safety professionals through the development of standards, the evolution of training methods and materials, the presentation of technical data and procedures, and the creation of specialty publications. In these ways, the division furthers the exchange of technical information on nuclear criticality safety with the ultimate goal of promoting the safe handling of fissionable materials outside reactors.

The word that replaces a name/noun if the subject is unknown or already established. For example: If Finley’s pronouns are she, her, and hers, you could say "Finley ate her ice cream because she didn’t want it to melt." She, her, hers are examples of pronouns in this case. Many avoid the labels "female/feminine" and "male/masculine" when referring to pronouns because, for example, not everyone who uses he feels like a "male" or "masculine." There are also lots of gender-neutral pronouns that you might not realize we already use. Here are a few you might hear: - They, them, theirs (Finley ate their ice cream because they didn’t want it to melt.) are a common example that we often use when a subject’s pronouns are unknown, but also work for known singular individuals. - Ze, hir (Finley ate hir ice cream because ze didn’t want it to melt.) Ze is pronounced like "zee" can also be spelled zie or xe, and replaces she/he/they. Hir is pronounced like "here" and replaces her/hers/him/his/they/theirs. - Some people use a combination of these pronouns, and some people prefer not to use pronouns at all (Finley ate the ice cream because Finley didn’t want it to melt). - Never, ever refer to a person as “it” or “he-she” (unless they specifically ask you to.) These are often offensive slurs.
Why do we ask for your pronouns at registration? Why should I consider putting them on my name badge?
By asking for your pronouns, we are ensuring that we don’t accidentally misgender any of our participants or make harmful assumptions based on appearance.Even if you have never considered this in relation to yourself, by including your pronouns on your name badge you can help to make other participants comfortable. We hope you will consider this, and we will be including pronouns on each person’s name tag.
