    • 15:20 - 03-05-2018 The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident has been thoroughly investigated. Many people around the world have asked, how could this happen in a such technical advanced country as Japan. In the IAEA Fukushima report, it was concluded that the contributing factors were lack of a systemic approach to safety and safety culture shortcomings. The analysis further evolved the understanding of the complexity and the underpinning factors in severe events. These insights and lessons learnt from Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident are relevant for any person working in a high hazard industry as it boils down to the very human and organizational aspect of safety. Ms Haage will share these lessons learnt which are relevant for the audience and provide some ideas on how to shape proactive countermeasures.
