Fitness for Duty report raises questions

The McGuire nuclear plant in North Carolina reported this morning that a non-licensed employee “failed to meet fitness-for-duty criteria.” The report does not say that the employee failed a Fitness for Duty test or what substance was involved, both of which are usually included in the boiler-plate language used in these reports. Reading between the lines, I’d guess that the employee was clearly impaired, and perhaps refused to take a breath or blood test. In any case, the employee’s site access was terminated, which lends support to the idea that this was something other than a run-of-the-mill positive breath test.

By day, I work for a call center. In my spare time, I try to save my hometown (and planet) from a nearly constant onslaught of greedheads, lunatics and land developers. I live in a fictional town called Austin, Texas, where I go to way too many meetings.
