Polar Vortex At Nuclear Plants
"Chilled Work Environment" is what the NRC (Nuclear Regulatory Commission) calls it when workers at a nuclear plant are hesitant to raise safety concerns for fear of retaliation.
That has to be a terrible position to be in, damned if you do and damned if you don't. What happened to ethics in business and concern for your employees? Not to mention concern for the community you do business in and the world you inhabit.
There have been some safety concerns at Wolf Creek Generating Station in Burlington, Kansas and it looks like these issues are now being addressed. That is good news. For the full story click here.
Safety at nuclear power facilities should always be the number one concern. If operators of the plant bully employees that want to raise safety concerns they should be dealt with severely.
