The UCOR Questioning Attitude Recognition Program was initiated in 2014 and was designed to encourage employees to question practices and conditions that may be unsafe as well as identify non-safety related continuous improvements. Monthly and quarterly winners receive a token of appreciation. Past winners include: A building service worker noticed and reported that bags of asbestos-contaminated laundry were improperly packaged, sealed and labeled. The workers questioning attitude prevented the violation of Department of Transportation regulations; An Atomic Trades and Labor Council rigger took action to check the wind speed to help ensure the safety of workers who were operating a bucket truck during a tree trimming operation and; Two nuclear facility safety engineers, identified the possibility that a building freeze valve may not be designed to prevent the escape of hazardous gas. It was subsequently determined that the valve would not serve to prevent a release. As a result, the safety basis analysis was changed which led to the avoidance of an unevaluated hazard to employees located in the facility and a significant amount of rework, additional analysis and DOE submittals.
