Strengthening nuclear and radiological leadership for safety

Security leadership in the areas of nuclear and radiology, high levels of nuclear safety and radiation protection, and the establishment of a healthy culture in all organizations were key issues for the safety school at the recent IAEA International Nuclear and Radiological Directorate. In Athens, Greece.

Participants in case studies and leadership games analyzed situations such as unwanted medical exposure, radioactive material cracks, and tests for establishing effective control. Interactive programming has helped an organization identify gaps and ways to improve nuclear safety processes and strategies. The school included lectures and provided insights and references to leadership models, traits, and cultural roles in leadership – all in light of the impact on nuclear and radiological safety.

IAEA Director Shahid Malik said: “The purpose of this program is to enable current and future leaders in the nuclear field to have a better and more understanding of their role in building a strong security culture.” Office of Safety and Security Coordination. “The high demand around the world since its inception is a testament to the need for such support.”

In just two weeks, 24 professionals from 13 countries have received theoretical and practical information on how to build and operate leadership skills on nuclear and radiological safety throughout their careers. This course is based on the IAEA Safety Standards, in particular the General Safety Regulations Management and Security Administration (No. GSR Part 2) and is hosted by the Greek Atomic Agency Commission (IEE) and supported by the IAEA Technical Cooperation Program.

Topics covered in nuclear and radiological safety, including interconnected and strategic approaches to safety and human conditions, and integrated systems in radiation safety, are discussed. The same session that took place during the week, the “Reflection Team” session, featured real-life stories of experts as influential safety leaders. One of the experiences was to inspect the safety parameter display system closely, which was controlled by the Junior Inspector General and the operator was restricting internal access to the nuclear power plant. Participants in this session learned skills on how to better prepare for situations that are similar or related. “Real experiences are powerful drivers that the school uses in its strategies,” Malik said.

In addition, the school emphasizes the concept of strength, which emphasizes the need for a strong nuclear safety system to ensure compliance with the International Atomic Energy Agency’s 27th edition and the safety standards. A strong nuclear security system includes a strong industrial sub-system, a strong regulatory sub-system and strong stakeholder support for peer review and questioning with a healthy interaction system.
