After the accident at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant (NPP), the International Nuclear Safety Advisory Group (INSAG) under the auspices of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) concluded there was a need to establish a “safety culture” as the most important prerequisite for NPP safety.

The aim of the concept was to create a national environment in which safety becomes a matter of daily concern.
