Culture of Safety

Safety is much more than a priority for the global nuclear energy industry.  It is ingrained in every detail of our business. It is a way of life.  More than any other industry in the world, safety is our culture.  It defines everything we do.

The international nuclear energy industry has built a strong safety record, so much so that other industries are now turning to nuclear as the benchmark for best practices.
We are developing a Safety Culture at ENEC, which means that before anything else, our priority is to ensure the safety of the UAE community, our employees and the environment. Safety always comes first.

Our employees are encouraged to raise any safety concerns or identify areas for improvement. Any ENEC employee is empowered to issue a “stop work” order if they believe a situation is unsafe.

This rigor promotes a culture of continual improvement and promises excellence in creating and sustaining a safety conscious work environment.

Our employees participate in regular safety training programs and are expected to meet the highest safety standards and use best practices in their every day work.

We believe this rigorous approach to safety will help us to deliver a nuclear energy program that sets new standards for the industry.

Nuclear energy

The energy that is released during a nuclear reaction. Splitting atoms (fission) and fusing atoms (fusion) both release nuclear energy. Today's nuclear power plants use fission to produce energy, which allow them to generate electricity on a large scale.
Stop work

A formal process for stopping work activities because of an imminent or perceived hazard to workers, the environment or equipment.
Safety culture

According to IAEA, “safety culture is that assembly of characteristics and attitudes in organizations and individuals which establishes that, as an overriding priority, nuclear plant safety issues receive the attention warranted by their significance.”
