Atlanta, GA (AP) - The Nuclear Regulatory Commission says the
failure to properly screen workers at a Georgia nuclear
construction site was a low-level violation of federal rules.
The commission released a summary Friday explaining the findings
of a scheduled inspection of a site near Waynesboro where the
Atlanta-based Southern Co. and its partners are preparing to build
two nuclear reactors. The Southern Co. and its construction
contractor, The Shaw Group, were not penalized.
Inspectors examined lapses that occurred when two supervisors
for a Shaw Group subcontractor improperly filled out questionnaires
for their employees that asked about drug and alcohol abuse.
Shaw Group spokeswoman Gentry Brann said those supervisors are
banned from the construction site. The subcontractor has been
replaced. Regulators said the workers otherwise met security
guidelines.
