NRC Action Type Date Issued Description
Kyle Dickerson
IANORDER 07/11/2016 On July 11, 2016, the NRC issued a Confirmatory Order to Mr. Kyle Dickerson confirming commitments reached as a result of an alternative dispute resolution mediation session. The session was associated with Mr. Dickerson’s conduct of radiographic operations that resulted in violations to the licensee, Acuren USA, for requirements in 10 CFR 34.51 and 34.53 by failing to conspicuously post the area with radiation area signs, and failing to maintain continuous direct visual surveillance of the operation to protect against unauthorized entry into a high radiation area. The agreement reached on June 3, 2016, included Mr. Dickerson completing such actions as providing training to other radiographers, shadowing a radiation safety officer during the performance of inspections of actual radiographic operations, submit a written document detailing the observations to the NRC, and submitting an article conveying personal lessons learned to an industry publication. In consideration of these commitments from Mr. Dickerson, the NRC agreed to refrain from issuing a Notice of Violation to Mr. Dickerson.
Mr. Vincent Doolittle
IA 18-030
IANORDER 08/16/2018 On August 16, 2018, the NRC issued a Notice of Violation to Mr. Vincent Doolittle for a Severity Level IV violation of 10 CFR 50.5(a), Deliberate Misconduct, which caused his employer, System One, an industry/NUPIC-approved vendor/contract personnel provider to be in violation of 10 CFR 50.5(a) and to cause the affected NRC licensee(s) to be in potential violation of 10CFR50, Appendix B, Criterion IX, "Control of Special Processes," requirements. Specifically, Mr. Doolittle on/or about October 12, 2012, while the Quality Assurance Manager for System One Solutions, LLC, engaged in the forging of a training document for a nondestructive examiner, which is a violation of 10 CFR 50.5(a)(1), that resulted in the submission of an individual for employment at an NRC licensee(s) who did not meet the requirements for employment in the position assigned, which is a violation of 10 CFR 50.5(a)(2). An investigation subsequently determined that the individual did not actually conduct nondestructive examination activities on any reactor safety systems while assigned to the reactor sites although he had the documented qualifications, false as they were, to do so.
Mr. Eli Dragomer
IANORDER 05/11/2017 On May 11, 2017, the NRC issued a Notice of Violation to Mr. Eli Dragomer for violations of 10 CFR 55.53(i) "Conditions of licenses," and 10 CFR 50.5(a)(2) "Deliberate misconduct." Specifically for the first violation, Mr. Dragomer failed to comply with a condition imposed by the Commission on his senior reactor operator license. For the second violation, Mr. Dragomer deliberately submitted to Entergy information that he knew to be incomplete or inaccurate in some respect material to the NRC. These two violations represent a Severity Level III problem.
