Operational Safety Assessment Safety Assessment


Only recently, as repositories move closer to implementation, has operational safety become a major topic, closely related to assurance of quality of the engineered barriers and response measures in the case of barriers that do not meet specifications or other operational perturbations.

This has extended more recently to seminal studies to assess the application of the concept of resilience to the operational phase of geological repositories and development of designs with higher resilience to even major operational perturbations.
