Bruce Power has once again received positive marks from the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) in its annual report card, which focuses on all aspects of the company’s operations.
The regulator’s report card gives Bruce Power’s Security and Conventional Health and Safety functions the highest available marks of ‘Fully Satisfactory,’ while 11 other aspects of the company were deemed ‘Satisfactory’ for the second year in a row. The CNSC has compared these marks to grades of A+ and A respectively in media reports.
“Not only have we returned our site to its full operating capability but we have worked very hard over the years to continuously improve each function of our business, and, for the second year in a row, we’re seeing our efforts reflected in the CNSC’s report card,” said Duncan Hawthorne, President and CEO. “We continue to focus on continuous improvement, while safely and reliably producing clean, low-cost electricity for the province.”
Hawthorne appears before the CNSC on Wednesday, Aug. 21, to discuss Bruce Power’s report card.
