UK’s Ministry of Defence (MoD) reprimanded for nuclear safety breaches

The Ferret 4th Nov 2018 , The Ministry of Defence (MoD) has been formally reprimanded by its internal
safety regulator for five nuclear safety breaches, according to documents
seen by The Ferret.

The Defence Nuclear Safety Regulator (DNSR) served MoD
nuclear agencies with one safety improvement notice in 2017, two in 2016
and two in 2010. The notices alleged a series of serious safety failings
with submarines stationed on the Clyde and at Trident bomb bases.

The DNSR accused the MoD of “a failure of safety culture”, “inadequate
resourcing” and “continued non-compliance”. In 2010 DNSR expressed
concern that “that future nuclear reactor programme safety may be
compromised.”

Green MSP and environment spokesperson, Mark Ruskell said
“It is time for Trident to be decommissioned, and the money, resources
and skills connected to Faslane redeployed towards sustainable progressive
infrastructure projects.”
