  • * * RETRACTION ON 4/30/2019 AT 1642 EDT FROM KELLI ROBERTS TO BRIAN LIN * * *

On April 16, 2019, an individual was selected for a follow-up drug test. The same individual was selected again on April 17, 2019 for a random drug test. The results for both tests were ruled by the Medical Review Officer (MRO) on the same day and ruled positive for the same drug on April 22, 2019. These FFD violations were reported to the NRC on April 22, 2019, as EN #54017 and EN #54018, respectively. As allowed by 10 CFR 26.185(o), the MRO further reviewed the quantitation of the drug in both tests and determined that no further drug use had occurred since the first positive test. Therefore, the MRO concluded that this should be considered one FFD violation, and EN #54018 is being retracted. No changes are needed to EN #54017. The NRC Resident Inspector has been notified of this retraction. Notified R2DO (Heisserer) and FFD Group (email).

Fitness for Duty (Ffd) Report Involving Programmatic Vulnerability

On March 9, 2012, Shaw's Vogtle 3&4 Construction Contractor FFD program manager notified SNC (Southern Nuclear Operating Company) FFD program manager of his discovery of anomalies in their random pool while preparing to perform the weekly random pool generation. At that time, approximately 20 people were identified as not being in the pool that had active badges. Corrective actions were implemented to update the pool and provide additional verification of any changes made to the pool. Subsequently discussions with licensing resulted in the conclusion that there was not an indication that there was a programmatic issue and thus was reportable under a 30 day report to the NRC. The NRC was informed of this decision and has been at Vogtle collecting data regarding this event. Since that time, Shaw has been checking past months to determine the extent of condition. On March 22, at 21:01, Shaw notified SNC that the October - December results of personnel who had active badges but was not in the pool was significantly higher than the January through March results, developed earlier. On the basis of this information, SNC has determined that this now rises to the level of a programmatic vulnerability and is subject to a 24-hour report to the NRC. SNC is providing this notification under the provisions of 10 CFR 26.719(b)(4) and 26.417(b)(1) as a discovered vulnerability of the FFD program. The licensee informed the NRC Resident Inspectors.

ENS 4609614 July 2010 17:47:0010 CFR 26.719Fitness for Duty Programmatic Issue Applicable to Construction Units 3 and 4

On July 2, 2010, Southern Nuclear Operating Company (SNC) provided a non-emergency event notification (EN# 46067) for an apparent non-compliance with 10 CFR 26.61 relating to self-disclosure requirements. During implementation of corrective actions for that event, Shaw Nuclear Services Inc. (Primary Construction Contractor for Vogtle 3&4) personnel identified that several of the self-disclosure forms received from a sub-contractor had very similar handwriting. An incident investigation was initiated to ascertain the relevant facts. During that investigation, Shaw identified two supervisory personnel from the sub-contractor organization who apparently provided the suspect self-disclosure documents for other employees from their company. Unescorted access for the two supervisory personnel was suspended and they were removed from the site pending completion of the investigation. All suspect self-disclosure forms were removed from the files, and the affected individuals have completed and submitted new self-disclosure forms. No other evidence of policy violations has been identified during this process. The investigation into the FFD event continues. On July 14, 2010, Shaw notified SNC that sufficient indication exists that the actions of the sub-contractor supervisory personnel may have violated the Shaw FFD policy. As such, this issue is reportable in accordance with 10 CFR 26.719(b)(2)(ii), which requires a non-emergency event notification. The licensee notified the NRC Resident Inspector.

This supervisory individual has been relieved of duty and removed from Vogtle 3&4 site. The documents affected by this individual were part of the documents identified in the original notification (EN# 46096) made on July 15, 2010. As part of the corrective actions from the root cause investigation into the previously reported events, Shaw has verified that a self-disclosure form has been completed by each individual as required by 10 CFR 26. This notification is being made as an update to EN# 46096 to identify that a third individual was involved in violating the Shaw FFD policy. The licensee notified the NRC Resident Inspector.
