NRC Reports on Human Performance at TMI, Other Plants

From a recent report:

During the Three Mile Island Unit Nuclear Generating Station refueling outage that began
October 22, 2007, there were several human performance-related issues that resulted in NRC
inspection findings which are summarized below, and in NRC Integrated Inspection Report
05000289/2007005, ADAMS Accession No. ML080430321.
• TMI’s procedure for authorizing workers to exceed work hour limits of 72 hours/week
was determined to be deficient in that it did not provide reasonable assurance that
station management would properly control overtime for plant staff performing safety-
related functions.
