From Yahoo News: "The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission on Thursday may fine Florida Power & Light Co $130,000 after security officers at the company's Turkey Point nuclear power plant near Miami were found sleeping on the job. The NRC said its investigators found that on multiple occasions from 2004 through 2006 'security officers at Turkey Point were willfully inattentive to duty or served as lookouts so other officers could sleep on duty'. An NRC inspector specifically saw on April 6, 2006, a security officer sleeping on duty while posted in a vital area of the reactor, the agency said. In a letter to the company this week, the NRC said it 'considers this matter to be a significant security concern' and sleeping security personnel 'cannot be tolerated'."
