Design Requirements and Safety Principles

The course is aimed at people with tasks that have an impact on the design and safety of a nuclear power plant, and its maintenance. You need to be able to apply and interpret the requirements placed on Swedish nuclear power plants in order to protect people and the surrounding areas from radioactive emissions.

This is a general course and applies to both BWR and PWR plants.

The course is part of a training package for reactor safety at Swedish nuclear power plants and consists of three levels/courses. The course is level 3 in the training package and is an application of and deep dive into the first two courses “Safety at Swedish nuclear power plants” and “Nuclear safety”.

Training package Reactor safety:

  • Level 1: Safety at Swedish nuclear power plants (e-learning)
  • Level 2: Nuclear safety
  • Level 3: Construction requirements and Safety principles
