Criticality Safety

A nuclear criticality involves fissile material which in an accident situation could result in a sudden and potentially lethal release of radiation.

Criticality safety is a field of nuclear engineering and its aim is to prevent nuclear criticality accidents. This is carried out by analysis of normal and abnormal conditions of fissile material operations as well as designing safe arrangements for the processing of fissile materials.

We have an in-house team dedicated to criticality safety which has significant experience supporting key clients across the nuclear industry.
