From today’s Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s Event Notification Reports page:
1. The Reactor Protection System for Unit 1 at the New Jersey’s Oyster Creek nuclear power plant activated unexpectedly yesterday evening. This came as a surprise because the reactor was offline at the time. The activation was caused by operator error: “The actuation was a result of the reactor mode switch being placed from the refuel position to the shutdown position without the scram bypass jumpers installed.”
2. And a licensed operator at the Limerick nuclear power plant in Pennsylvania tested positive for alcohol in a random Fitness for Duty test. The operator’s access to the plant “has been restricted,” though the nature of the restriction was not specified.
These reports are so common that I need a couple of abbreviations to use as shorthand. How about PBUI for Pushing Buttons under the Influence, and SUI for Supervising under the Influence?
