The relationship between the employee’s level of health and his professional reliability is currently obvious and does not require additional evidence. The implementation of measures aimed at reducing the risks of emergency situations caused by the human factor at nuclear energy facilities is an important element of the radiation protection system.

In order to achieve the above-mentioned goals of the organization, in accordance with Federal Law № 170-FZ of 21.11.1995, the performance of certain types of work in the field of atomic energy use requires special permits from Rostechnadzor. A prerequisite for obtaining such a permit for a specialist is the absence of psychophysiological contraindications based on the results of a psychophysiological examination.

This study analyzes the results of psychophysiological examinations of employees of nuclear energy facilities conducted by specialists of the State Research Center – A.I. Burnasyan Federal Medical Biophysical Center of Federal Medical Biological Agency in 2020 and 2021.

Keywords: nuclear industry, workers, psychophysiological examinations, psychophysiological contraindications, radiation safety
