  1. 1. Safety Reviews of Technical System Modifications in the Nuclear Industry

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Thomas Falk; KTH.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; safety; safety review; nuclear; nuclear power plant; process; process improvement; action research; experience feedback;

    Abstract : The function of safety reviews (here understood as expert judgements on proposals for design modifications and redesign of technical systems in commercial Nuclear Power Plants, supported by formalised safety review processes) plays a fundamental role for safety in nuclear installations. The primary aims of the presented case studies includes: critically examining and identifying the main areas for improvement of the existing technical safety review process as it is conducted at a Swedish nuclear power plant, developing a new process, and evaluating whether any improvements were accomplished.
