Nuclear Professionalism


All people working in the nuclear sector, irrespective of their level or grade of employment, can be characterised as nuclear professionals.

This recognition of professionalism is absolutely key to ensuring the ongoing and increased acceptance of nuclear as a safe,sustainable energy source helping to meet the country’s energy needs.

As such, in addition to role-specific technical skills, all nuclear professionals demonstrate something extra – what we call the Nuclear Delta®.

This sets out the professional requirements specific to the nuclear sector, namely the understanding of nuclear-specific standards and requirements, especially the importance of nuclear safety culture, nuclear security culture and nuclear technology.

Nuclear professionals achieving the Nuclear Delta® demonstrate an ongoing commitment to personal behavioural standards and apply their skills and knowledge effectively in a nuclear context.
