EDF Energy is one of the UK’s largest energy companies and its largest producer of low-carbon electricity. Because nuclear safety is our overriding priority, we have produced a summary of our nuclear safety and waste policies, and management systems.
Safety is our number one priority. Nuclear power stations are highly regulated in all security and safety matters. Our safety standards are rightly very high and our emergency arrangements are rigorously planned and rehearsed.
Following the earthquake and tsunami in Japan on 11 March 2011, and the subsequent nuclear incident at Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant, EDF Energy has committed to further enhance its robust safety standards across its fleet of eight nuclear power plants.
