a state of critical urgency
a critical state; especially the point at which a nuclear reaction is self-sustaining
- potential heat generation, potential gas generation, potential criticality (as appropriate),
- reserving certain workstations to access sites of the same criticality level and only accessing those sites from those workstations;
- Information priority from the point of view of safety-relevance depends on its urgency and criticality (i.e. severity of the consequences if the information is not acted upon).
