On 4/18/2018, at approximately 0300 EDT, a contract cleaning employee notified her supervisor that she had found an oven mitt and a bottle containing a liquid that was possibly urine. The bottle had a temperature strip and heating element attached to it. These items were found in the trash in a bathroom in the training center located near the bathroom used for Fitness-for-Duty testing. The supervisor notified Security. Security responded and took possession of the objects.

The licensee notified the NRC Resident Inspector.

[ original Event Date: 06/27/2016, Event Time: 07:29 [PDT] ]

A non-licensed contract employee had a confirmed positive for alcohol following a for-cause fitness-for-duty test.
The employee's access to the plant has been terminated.

This information will be sent to the NRC Region 4 Office as San Onofre no longer has a resident.


* * * RETRACTION ON 4/18/2018 AT 1308 EDT FROM TIM CUSICK TO STEVEN VITTO * * *

"In the event report, the individual was described as a contract supervisor, thus meeting the reporting threshold.
(the violation of the FFD policy was that he failed a for-cause test for alcohol).

Recently, an NRC review of SONGS' 2016 Annual Fitness for Duty report found that SONGS described that test failure as 'not reportable' and that the labor category was 'Maintenance
(Craft).'
[ Why is NRC reviewing old FFD reports ? ]

After reviewing the data, Access Authorization confirmed that the individual was a Union Maintenance Foreman (not a supervisor).
The event was not reportable."

[ So a 'contract supervisor' is reportable but not a 'Union Maintenance Foreman'. ]  

SONGS will be notifying NRC Region 4.

Notified R4DO (O'KEEFE) and FFD E-mail Group.
