Safe stations, safe community
 
Over the last 10 years, OPG has taken great strides and invested more than $400 million to ensure our nuclear stations are safe and secure for our staff, our communities and the stability of Ontario’s electricity system.
 

Working with regional, provincial, national and international law enforcement agencies, our stations utilize sophisticated security technology and intelligence to keep our stations and communities safe.

Some examples of OPG’s robust security program include:

  • A security clearance process: To enter the site, OPG staff must have a valid security clearance and identification card. An in-depth security review is completed every five years for all employees and includes background and police checks. Every employee must also undergo a three-step security search each time they enter the protected area of the site.
  • Visitors to OPG’s nuclear stations must receive prior approval to enter the station, via a similar security clearance, and must undergo the same search process. They must also be accompanied at all times by an authorized staff member.

Physical barriers, including vehicle denial barriers, wire fencing and additional anti-intrusion measures protect the site. In addition, there is round-the-clock monitoring and patrol by nuclear security officers. Safety and security are ingrained in OPG’s culture. OPG is absolutely committed to keeping our employees, the station and our communities safe and secure.
