Nuclear Plant “Near-Miss” in Canada Leads to Safety Stand Down
Here’s the article about an incident at the AECL NRU Reactor at Chalk River:
Here are my favorite two quotes from the article…
The initial report states: “Root cause has not yet been determined, but human error was a major contributor to the event.”
and also, “A safety stand down was held with the crew of each shift to discuss the importance of the event and event free tools that should have been used.”
Ahhh … the good old event-free tools.
Wonder what the human factors problems were?
