The accident that occurred in 1986 at the fourth unit of Chernobyl nuclear power station, in former Soviet Union, is undoubtedly one of the most serious accidents in the history of nuclear industry. A vital recommendation made by the International Nuclear Safety Advisory Group (INSAG), IAEA that went into the causes of the accident was the creation and maintenance of nuclear safety culture to improve the nuclear safety performance. It is increasingly being recognised that the promotion and maintenance of a good safety culture and careful management of organisational changes are fundamental to ensuring that nuclear and radiological safety are adequately controlled and a good basis exists to achieve continuous improvement.
