Event Reports: Yet another drunk on duty incident at a nuclear power plant

The Fermi nuclear power plant in Michigan notified the Nuclear Regulatory Commission that a non-licensed employee supervisor tested positive for alcohol in a Fitness for Duty test last Friday. I don’t know how the nukes make decisions about firing people in these circumstances, but in this case, the employee’s “unescorted access has been terminated.” I guess that the drunken employee can continue to come to work as long as he has a sober buddy to keep him out of trouble.

About Robert Singleton

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.
