Supervisor at V.C. Summer nuclear power plant fails for-cause fitness for duty test

A supervisor at the V.C. Summer nuclear power plant in South Carolina confirmed positive for alcohol during a for-cause fitness for duty test.  The employee has had their access to the site terminated.

Fitness for duty tests are administered either randomly, in a lottery-style system where “winners” get to report to the medical office for testing, or for-cause, which are administrated after supervisors note aberrant behaviors and order follow-up testing to ensure compliance.  Aberrant behaviors cover a wide range of actions from staggering, making simple mistakes (such as turning the wrong switch), acting belligerent or out of character, among a multitude of overall deviations from normal behavior for the individual.
