This safety guide authored by nuclear scientists from the International Atomic Energy Agency (AIEA) provides recommendations for meeting the requirements of a level one probabilistic safety assessment (level 1 PSA) for nuclear power plants. The recommendations are based on globally recognized best practices and address the necessary technical features of a level 1 PSA, including plant operating conditions and potential hazards both internal and external, natural and human-caused. Topics covered include project management and organization of PSA, selection of methods and procedures, detailed analysis of fire, human reliability analysis, external floods, risk-informed service inspections, and the use of risk monitors.
