Big Science constructions are examples of complex civil engineering, safety-important buildings typically characterized by high safety requirements to protect personnel, users, equipment, and surroundings against radiation, fire, gas, cryogenics, chemicals, heavy loads, and other hazardous items or situations. Many complex civil engineering techniques, safety regulations and practices have some commonalities in the Big Science organisations. They are typically subjected to the regulatory requirements of the country they are based in. The technical areas of particular interest are for example: complex civil engineering, health and safety activities and legislation, radiation protection and shielding, nuclear and non-nuclear hazards, waste management and disposal, radiological and environmental monitoring, licensing regulations, access control.
