IAORDER 08/02/2005 On August 2, 2005, an immediately effective Order Prohibiting Involvement in NRC-Licensed Activities (for five years) was issued to the individual based on his deliberate activities involving his possession of byproduct material without an NRC or an Agreement State license. The Order is effective for 5 years from the date of issuance of the Order. As a technician formerly employed by Professional Inspection and Testing Services, Inc., the individual maintained possession of a moisture density gauge without the licensee's knowledge.
Mr. Casey Pooler
IAORDER 02/15/2017 On February 15, 2017, the NRC issued Mr. Casey Pooler an Order prohibiting his involvement in NRC-licensed activities for a period of three years and a Severity Level III Notice of Violation. While employed at Seabrook Station, Mr. Pooler engaged in deliberate misconduct, in violation of 10 CFR 50.5(a)(1) by placing his former employer, NextEra Energy Seabrook, LLC., Seabrook Station, in violation of 10 CFR 73.55(k)(2). 10 CFR 73.55(k)(2) requires licensees to ensure that all firearms, ammunition, and equipment necessary to implement the site security plans and protective strategy are in sufficient supply, are in working condition, and are readily available for use. During an investigation Mr. Pooler agreed to meet with an Office of Investigations (OI) agent and stated that he believed he placed the materials in the weapon. He told OI that he did not know why he did it, and adamantly stated that he was not trying to hurt anyone or to assist anyone with gaining access to the site. Mr. Pooler acknowledged that it was reasonable to assume that he did not come forward about what he had done because he was afraid of being fired. Mr. Pooler also affirmed that he was not aware of adverse issues with any other weapons or equipment at the site. Mr. Pooler will be prohibited from any involvement in NRC-licensed activities for a period of three years and will be required to notify the NRC, for one year after the three year prohibition has expired, within 20 days following acceptance of his first employment offer involving NRC-licensed activities.
