Nuclear power developments in China and the world
The development of human society and technology is closely correlated to the means of energy acquisition, utilization method, efficiency, and spectrum of applications. High quality of life and sustainable socioeconomic development require a sustainable and reliable energy supply. Wealth, health, food, water, infrastructure, education, and even life expectancy itself strongly correlate with the consumption of energy per capita. Having an adequate, reliable, affordable, eco-friendly, and sustainable supply of energy is becoming more crucial for economic development and improving human well-being.

This workshop will acquaint students with some of the vital safety functions in nonreactor nuclear facilities, including criticality safety and radiological safety. Attendees will be introduced to the use of standards and regulatory guidance as they pertain to both DOE and NRC-licensed facilities. Other topics include, but may not be limited to, normal and credible abnormal conditions, process hazard analysis, and development of safety basis.
A hypothetical nuclear material handling scenario will be provided to students, and the topics mentioned previously will be applied to that scenario. The workshop will use this exercise to demonstrate how different groups within the same organization apply their varying focuses to achieve a common goal of facility, operator, and environmental safety.
