The Office of the Inspector General conducted a review of the Watts Bar Nuclear Plant (WBN) Radiation Protection (RP) organization to identify factors that could impact WBN RP’s organizational effectiveness. Our report identified behaviors that had a positive impact on WBN RP. However, we also identified a behavior that could negatively affect WBN RP. Specifically, we identified a behavioral risk related to accountability that, if left unaddressed, could impact WBN RP’s effectiveness and its continued ability to meet its responsibilities in support of WBN’s mission. We also identified operational positives regarding WBN RP’s working relationship with outside departments and having enough resources to do the work.
