International School of Nuclear and Radiological Leadership for Safety

The International School of Nuclear and Radiological Leadership for Safety supports Member States in work to foster a culture for safety. The School’s curriculum, based on the IAEA safety standards, contributes to global nuclear and radiological safety through strengthening capacity-building efforts.

Leadership for safety in nuclear and radiological environments is key to preventing accidents and mitigating their consequences, should they occur. Safety leadership is particularly important in nuclear and radiological work environments because of their inherent complexities and often competing interest. The International School of Nuclear and Radiological Leadership for Safety aims to develop the potential for such leadership among early to mid-career nuclear professionals through intensive training in one to two-week sessions, with short, two–three day demonstrations also available. The School can be held at national or regional level. It aims to strengthen participants’ ability to apply the IAEA safety standards.

The School examines nuclear and radiological safety leadership in both normal and emergency scenarios, and it includes an element of nuclear security.  Its curriculum is based on case studies, with participants analysing and interacting on scenarios that involve topics such as unintended medical exposure, a nuclear power plant outage and leaks of radioactive materials.

The course also includes presentations, briefings, individual study and in-class group work and discussions. It aims to reinforce a mindset that embraces nuclear and radiological safety leadership that will serve participants throughout their careers.
