ABSTRACT

Lessons for Nuclear Security from the UK's Response to Covid-19   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Executive Summary: "The Covid-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic has complicated nuclear operations around the world including the implementation of nuclear security. While the pandemic's impact and responses to it have varied from country to country, there exist common challenges faced by the nuclear sector. These include an increase in worker absenteeism due to infections and enforced isolation, restrictions on onsite numbers and the proximity of staff to minimise the risk of transmission, a large-scale transition to remote working and disruption to key supply chains. This policy brief seeks to explore the impact of these and other challenges faced by the UK nuclear sector, examining how they have affected the delivery of security and the efficacy of new measures put in place to mitigate potential risks."
