Nuclear Incidents: Overview

Newrisk Limited is available to advise organisations and governments on nuclear incidents, including the prevention and response to nuclear incidents. Newrisk Limited is also able to advise specifically on issues related to the Japanese Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, as well as nuclear issues affecting Pakistan and Iran.

Newrisk Limited and its principal adviser, Dr Leivesley, have experience of advising organisations and governments on nuclear incidents, including the protection of governmental functions and the general public in the event of a nuclear event and radiological consequences. Dr Leivesley trained as a scientific adviser with the Home Office and during that time completed a specialist course in Advanced Radiobiology. Subsequently, Dr Leivesley was contracted to the Scientific Research and Development Branch of the Home Office.

Within her role as a Scientific Adviser, Dr Leivesley exercised with local authorities and other government organisations on the protection of the country under extreme threat conditions. This included numerous exercises on the evacuation of London and the minimisation of extreme consequences of threats on the population.

Newrisk Limited has advised corporations and undertaken media commentary during the immediate crisis of the radiological contamination from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, following the 11th March 2011 Japanese earthquake and tsunami which disabled the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear reactors' cooling systems (details of Newrisk Limited's experience in relation to Fukushima, is available by following this link). Previously, Dr Leivesley also reviewed the Chernobyl incident and Three Mile Island incident for organisations in the UK and abroad.

          BREAKING NEWS

  • Terror 2017
  • Cyber 2017

New dangers are appearing from terrorism for the UK & other countries after the failed Parsons Green underground rail bombing.  Greater public preparedness is now important on what to do in an imminent emergency whether arising from bombs, knives, car ramming or shootings. Workplace training & exercising will help many commuters & will be transferred by them to their families & importantly will encourage parents to discuss emergency evacuations & procedures with any children who travel unaccompanied to school each day.   Newrisk Limited which is a founder member of The Exercise Group7 LLP, (TEG7) is now part of the team providing 14 bespoke courses to mitigate risk from cyber & terrorism & to develop greater awareness of protection under catastrophic risk events.   The TEG7 team work is built up from former military specialist skills & institutional cyber operations skills (www.teg7.co.uk).

Individuals can be encouraged to make their own personal protection plans to empower themselves for any unlikely emergency from terrorism so that they are quickly able to recognise an incident & protect themselves & people close-by to the best of their ability.  Personal plans may include understanding what may be seen or heard or smelt when in proximity to a threat, what materials in clothing give better durability in certain threat situations & what the timelines are for the best chances for survival & mitigation of injury & shock.  Psychological issues in the aftermath of a high threat incident are also important for awareness & self-help & seeking professional help is possible also in these upsetting situations when there has been a near death experience.

Personal information data loss from 400,000 British citizens has been reported by Equifax alongside 143 million Americans in an incident identified in September.  These large data losses provide the criminal world - as well as nation states that use hackers as proxies for defence & commercial information - with the means to undertake identity theft & to attack individuals & companies in many different ways.  Personal history details remain the same throughout life & passwords are frequently used across different areas of activity so that hacking of this scale inevitably exposes the workplace as well as the individual.

Newrisk Limited as part of the TEG7 (The Exercise Group 7 LLP) training initiative, is providing cyber risk mitigation & catastrophic risk training for companies & governments world-wide.  The TEG7 team work is built up from former military specialist skills & institutional cyber operations skills (www.teg7.co.uk). There are 14 courses designed for cyber & physical security to be managed in an integrated format along with an understanding of the extreme threats which are difficult to recognise but which threaten the sustainability of operations.
