Approach that is fundamental to safe and stable operation of Shika Nuclear Power Station

Nuclear disaster prevention training

 On November 23, 2015, Ishikawa prefecture, Shika-machi and other organizations conducted a "nuclear disaster prevention training" including evacuation training for local residents. Hokuriku Electric Power Company took part in this training to confirm division of roles and coordination with the government and the local public authorities, and carried out various drills for improvement of skills in responding to disasters.
 Also, we continuously conduct trainings for safety improvement at Shika Nuclear Power Station with an aim to maintain and improve fast and accurate response capability as well as reinforce various pieces of equipment on the idea that an individual assumes the prime responsibility for device and equipment operation in preparation for unexpected situations including natural disasters like earthquakes, tsunamis, etc.

Nuclear Safety Reliability Conference

 We have formed the "Nuclear Safety Reliability Conference (Chairman: Hiroto Ishida, Honorary President of Kanazawa Gakuin University)," an organization designed to gather multilateral opinions and comments from outside knowledgeable persons on the overall measures related primarily to the operation and management of Shika Nuclear Power Station.
 At its tenth meeting held in May 2016, we explained about our response to the seams in the site of Shika Nuclear Power Station and implementation of our safety improvement work in consideration of the new regulatory standards, and received attendees' opinions.
 We plan to hold such meetings regularly to hear the views and opinions continuously.
