Safe operation is always the top priority for all nuclear power stations. At Daya Bay Nuclear Power Station, Defence-in-depth principles are used to ensure robust safety back up support.

The Defence-in-depth principles cover a full spectrum of areas from initial plant design to the installation of all equipment and the carrying out of all operational procedures. In the event of an emergency due to equipment failure or human error, auxiliary equipment is ready to step in and maintain plant operation functions. This effectively minimises the chances of any adverse impacts of Daya Bay to its environment.
