Delivering the safe clean-up and demolition of the UK's former centre of fast reactor research on behalf of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority

Safety and Environment

There are major chemical and radiological hazards at Dounreay which, if not properly contained and managed, could cause serious harm to people and the environment.

Reducing or eliminating these hazards in a way that protects people and the environment - both today and in the future - is the task of Dounreay Site Restoration Ltd, as the main site contractor to the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority.

Working safely is integral to the successful delivery of the site closure programme.

We want everyone to go home in as good health as when they arrived for work.

That means working tirelessly to build safety into everything we do as individuals and as a company.

It's important, too, that we seek to minimise the impact of our day-to-day business on the environment in aspects such as carbon emissions.

Our activities have the potential to impact adversely on communities who live and work around the site, so it's also important we protect their environment and amenity from harm.
