Although there are nuclear energy plants around the world which operate successfully, there is often a stigma attached to nuclear energy in the United States. But when it comes down to it, workplace accidents in the nuclear sector are below the yearly average of those in the oil and gas, agriculture, and constructions industries. Nuclear energy is overall very safe.
Worldwide, many countries have turned to nuclear energy as it promotes a carbon-free world. Over 30 other nations interested in nuclear energy are working with the International Energy Agency (IEA) in an effort to start their own nuclear program. So where does the US fall in this equation? There are many start-up companies, some with backing from investors such as Bill Gates. With an emphasis on business success and social responsibility, these companies are likely to begin the upward trend of moving towards this alternative, safe energy source.
Part of maintaining safety in any workplace is having the right equipment. At Astro Machine Works, we offer precision manufacturing for the energy sector in addition to many other industries.
