Mr. Ben Welch
12/10/2018 On December 10, 2018, the NRC issued a Severity Level III Notice of Violation to Mr. Ben Welch for violations of 10 CFR 50.5(a)(2) "Deliberate misconduct." Specifically, Mr. Welch submitted to the licensee information that he knew to be incomplete and inaccurate and in some respect material to the NRC. He initiated a condition report which he knew contained incomplete and inaccurate information which stated that there were suspected leaking valves in a reactor system when he well knew that his failure to perform a step in a procedure caused an inadvertent transfer of water in the system.
Mr. Kevin Wright
01/26/2022 On January 26, 2022, the NRC issued a Notice of Violation to Mr. Kevin Wright, for a Severity Level III violation of 10 CFR 50.5(a) requirements.  Mr. Wright, the Security Training Superintendent responsible for armorer duties, deliberately caused Holtec Decommissioning International, LLC (Licensee), Oyster Creek Nuclear Generating Station, to be in violation of 10 CFR Part 73, Appendix B, Criterion VI.G, "Weapons, Personal Equipment, and Maintenance," Section 3(a), "Firearms maintenance program," when he failed to perform required annual material condition inspections of firearms and falsified the records submitted to the NRC that related to these activities. Specifically, Mr. Wright, deliberately did not perform required annual material condition inspections on all duty firearms as described in facility procedures and the Commission-approved Training and Qualification Plan.  Additionally, after the NRC questioned him about not performing the annual material condition inspection, he inaccurately documented in the firearms maintenance logs that the inspections had been performed.
