Mediated settlement includes refresher courses and an ombudsman to help raise concerns about safety
Management of the Palisades Nuclear Power Plant near South Haven will take several actions to strengthen its safety culture after a low-level security incident was recently settled through mediation.The plant, owned by Entergy Corp., has been under scrutiny from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission for a "chilled work environment," though the facility has been improving, according to officials.The incident happened on Christmas Eve 2012 when a person requested leave for the day.
