Zwilag takes all reasonable measures to protect people, property and the environment. The scope of these protective measures at all times meets the targets defined in the laws, implementing ordinances and guidelines.

To reach these objectives, comprehensive safety and protection concepts were drawn up for the construction and operation of the facility. These concepts were implemented with the support of the competent authorities.

The main objective of nuclear safety technology is the building of reliable and hazard-proof facilities and plants. At Zwilag, safety takes top priority and the company has an excellent record in this regard. It relies on passive, i.e. mainly structural, elements as well as active multiple safety barriers which are complemented by a lively culture of safety. Zwilag interprets safety as an ongoing process of central importance that must be continuously analysed and improved.
