Event Reports: Failed Fitness for Duty reports in four nuclear power plants


Four nuclear power plants reported to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission in the last two weeks that employees had failed Fitness for Duty screens for drugs or alcohol.

Alcohol was the culprit at Sequoyah in Tennessee and at Browns Ferry in Alabama. Failure in a “for-cause chemical test” was cited at the Harris nuclear power plant in North Carolina. The incident at Vermont Yankee did not indicate whether drugs or alcohol were involved, but indicated that the test was “for-cause,” which usually indicates that an employee’s impairment was apparent, and resulted in a Fitness for Duty screening.
