We strive to provide a healthy, accident- and injury-free workplace for employees and contractors, and also integrate public health and safety considerations into business practices. We currently follow all applicable regulations and legislation with respect to health and safety and emergency preparedness and response, and the same will apply to the repository.
Emergency plans and procedures will be developed for the repository, in concert with a risk assessment and risk management plan, to prevent, prepare for and and respond to emergencies that could be reasonably expected to occur. These documents would provide detailed processes to follow in the event of an emergency. All workers are required to be trained on emergency response procedures. Emergency drills are carried out to ensure all workers understand how to respond during an emergency.
We will provide an emergency response plan to the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission, Transport Canada and the provinces to demonstrate that appropriate measures and procedures are in place for the life cycle of the project and the transportation of used nuclear fuel. We will ensure that information is available to relevant public emergency response agencies.
