Safety & Security

Safety is our top priority

Safety is the primary focus for the 900 nuclear energy professionals who work at the station


Our defense-in-depth approach prevents accidents and releases of radiation through redundant layers of defense so that no single layer is exclusively relied upon.

Track Record of Excellence

Susquehanna has continually been rated within top-level performance characteristics based on DuPont safety ratings.

Rigorous Oversight

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), an independent federal agency, provides rigorous oversight of the station and evaluates our performance on an ongoing basis.

Continuous Improvement

The NRC, the nuclear industry, and the Susquehanna team routinely analyze events at nuclear plants throughout the world to identify improvements, leading to enhanced safety.

Stringent security measures provide multiple layers of safety

Continuous Training

Our operators undergo rigorous training, spending one out of every six weeks in required training.

Secured Access

We maintain strict security to prevent unauthorized persons from gaining access to critical equipment or approaching close enough to harm the station.
