AGREEMENT STATE REPORT - SHUTTER WOULD NOT OPEN

The following was received from the State of Wisconsin:

"On February 16, 2018 WI DHS [Wisconsin Department of Health Services] was notified that at the licensee's Stevens Point facility a scanning gauge had a malfunction with the automatic control mechanism and the shutter would not open. The issue was originally identified by the licensee's on-site [personnel] on January 28, 2018 and a service provider was able to fix the issue on January 31, 2018. The corporate RSO [Radiation Safety Officer] became aware of the issue after an on-site visit on February 15, 2018 and reported it to WI DHS the next day. The department will follow-up with the licensee to determine the cause of the shutter control mechanism failure and delay in reporting issues to the corporate RSO."

Event Text

POTENTIALLY CONTAMINATED WORKER TRANSPORTED TO OFFSITE MEDICAL FACILITY

"At 2247 Eastern [Standard] Time the Unit 1 Control Room was notified of a personnel injury in the Unit 1 lower containment. Unit 1 is currently in Mode 1 at 100 [percent] [Reactor] Power and the individual was working in lower containment. The individual's injury appears to be Heat Exhaustion. Site emergency medical technicians responded to the scene and the individual was transported to a local medical facility via ambulance. At the time of transport, the individual was considered to be potentially contaminated because complete surveys could not be performed while the individual was immobilized for transfer. The individual and clothing were surveyed at the hospital by a resident Radiation Protection Technician and no contamination was found.

"This report is being made pursuant to 10 CFR 50.72(b)(3)(xii), 'Any event requiring the transport of a radioactively contaminated person to an offsite medical facility for treatment.'

"The NRC Resident Inspector has been notified."
