The Office of the Inspector General conducted a review of the Sequoyah Nuclear Plant (SQN) Radiation Protection (RP) organization to identify factors that could impact SQN RP’s organizational effectiveness. While we identified certain behavioral attributes that had a positive impact on SQN RP, we also identified behavioral risks that could have a negative impact SQN RP’s effectiveness. Specifically, these risks related to (1) relationships between individuals and (2) interactions with certain management. In addition, while we identified certain positive operational factors, we also identified operational risks which could hinder SQN RP’s ability to execute its responsibilities and support Nuclear’s vision and core principles. These risks related to (1) sampling for tritium and (2) training.
