The Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority in Finland

As its name indicates, The Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority in Finland (STUK) is the authority and expert organization  responsible for monitoring radiation and nuclear safety, and natural radiation in Finland. STUK employs about 350 experts in various fields. The purpose of STUK’s operations is to protect people, society, the environment and future generations from the harmful effects of radiation.

STUK monitors nuclear power stations, nuclear materials and nuclear waste, and the use of radiation in health care, industry and research. STUK is also responsible for the monitoring of non-ionising radiation, such as sunbeds, mobile phones and lasers. The majority of STUK’s employees also participate in emergency preparedness operations.

The goal of our work is to keep the radiation exposure of the Finnish population as low as reasonably achievable and the level of radiation safety as high as possible, while preventing radiation and nuclear accidents.

Eighty per cent of STUK’s permanent employees have a university degree. The most common educational backgrounds are technology and natural sciences.

We continuously develop our operations to improve safety, quality and outcomes. All our employees have an opportunity to develop their professional skills and their jobs. This is supported by our flexible organization that emphasises teamwork. We find our work meaningful and understand its effects on safety. We invest in the well-being of our staff and their capacity to work.

For students, we offer opportunities for writing a thesis and have vacancies for on-the-job training. We can also offer vacancies for those in non-military service, provided that the person has education or skills related to STUK’s operations.

The STUK office is located at Roihupelto, Helsinki, conveniently close to the metro line. Furthermore, the Olkiluoto and Loviisa nuclear power stations have a local on-site STUK inspector.
