NRC Action Number
NRC Action Type Date Issued Description
Timothy M. Goold
IAORDER 10/10/2012 On October 10, 2012, the NRC issued a Confirmatory Order to Mr. Timothy M. Goold, former radiographer at JANX Integrity Group (JANX), Inc., confirming commitments reached as part of an alternative dispute resolution (ADR) mediation session. Mr. Goold agreed as part of the ADR session to refrain from engaging in NRC-licensed activities until issuance of the Confirmatory Order and then to have limited work restrictions for a 2-year period from the effective date of the Confirmatory Order. Specifically, these commitments include, but are not limited to, Mr. Goold: (1) being prohibited from engaging in NRC-licensed industrial radiographic operations without direct supervision and working in any type of supervisory position while in NRC jurisdiction; (2) notifying the NRC within 15 days of accepting employment with an NRC or Agreement State licensee and, on a weekly basis, where he will be performing radiography; and (3) taking additional training. On June 25, 2012, the NRC issued a 1-year Prohibition Order to Mr. Goold based on the NRC's determination that Mr. Goold twice engaged in deliberate misconduct in violation of 10 CFR 30.10(a)(1). First, Mr. Goold engaged in deliberate misconduct in violation of 10 CFR 30.10(a)(1) by performing radiography without a second person present causing JANX to be in violation of 10 CFR 34.41(a). Second, Mr. Goold engaged in deliberate misconduct in violation of 10 CFR 30.10(a)(1) when he avoided the NRC inspector by leaving when the inspector tried to question him regarding the whereabouts of the second qualified radiographer, causing JANX to be in violation of 10 CFR 30.52(a). The October 10, 2012, Confirmatory Order replaces the June 25, 2012, Prohibition Order issued to Mr. Goold.
Francis Guilbeau
IAORDER 01/05/2012 On January 5, 2012, the NRC issued Mr. Francis Guilbeau an Order prohibiting involvement in NRC-licensed activities for a period of one year. As a former radiographer employed by Accurate NDE & Inspection, LLC (Accurate NDE), working in NRC jurisdiction, this individual engaged in deliberate misconduct while performing radiographic operations on March 14 and March 15, 2010. Specifically, he deliberately failed to follow Accurate NDE operating procedures by attempting to retrieve a disconnected source without first contacting and obtaining authorization from the Radiation Safety Officer that, in turn, placed Accurate NDE in violation of its Louisiana State license and 10 CFR 150.20(b)(5). Additionally, the individual deliberately provided inaccurate information on a daily radiation report involving a dose exposure for another radiographer. These actions constituted two separate violations of NRC's rule prohibiting deliberate misconduct, 10 CFR 30.10.
