About us

In a sector where safety, security and the protection of the environment is, and must always be the number one priority, the Safety Directors’ Forum (SDF) plays a crucial role in bringing together senior level nuclear executives to identify the key strategic environment, safety, health, security and quality issues facing the industry and identify the appropriate industry response.

  • Facilitate continuous improvement opportunities within the member organisations by sharing best practices in respect of operational safety standards and implementation arrangements
  • To formulate agreed industry policies and practices
  • Provide a forum for effective sharing of knowledge and experience
