On Thursday, a supervisor at the Brunswick nuclear power plant in North Carolina was administered a follow-up fitness for duty test. The test administered to the supervisor resulted in a confirmed positive result for illegal drugs.
The licensee revoked the employee’s access to the plant.
A licensee conducts pre-access, for cause, post-even, follow-up and random fitness for duty tests. Follow-up tests are administered to ensure an employee’s continued abstinence from substance abuse after testing positive for drugs or alcohol.
