Safety of nuclear installations is an obvious topic of the IJNS. The current issue offers the readers a possibility to reflect on the concept of safety itself. The need for reconsidering the safety concept has been articulated internationally, due to warning signs and direct evidence of failures in maintaining safety of organizations, notwithstanding the considerable efforts of these organizations to establish safety measures and to develop good safety culture. The question must be raised, whether the current understanding of what makes a system safe really is adequate: Is the focus of safety management right, and are the used means capable of dealing with safety issues of the increasingly large and complex socio-technical systems that are operated and designed today?
