13th August 2018 - San Onofre Nuclear Waste Accident Near Miss
Extracts:

While working at the plant in his capacity as a safety professional, Fritch observed first hand a near catastrophe. On 3 August 2018, a 100-ton canister filled with highly radioactive nuclear waste was being “downloaded” into a temporary transport carrier to be moved a few hundred yards from inside the plant to a storage silo buried near the world-famous San Onofre beach. As the thin-walled canister was being lowered into the transport cask, it snagged on a guide ledge four feet from the top. Crane operators were unaware that the canister had stopped descending and the rigging went completely slack, leaving the full weight of the heavy canister perched on that ledge by about a quarter-inch.

Had the ledge not held for the hour or more it took workers to realize and address the error, the thin-walled canister of highly toxic nuclear waste would have fallen 18 feet to the ground below.

:shock: Wow I've been working so much lately, I missed this.

A worker at the San Onofre nuclear power plant exposes a near catastrophe incident at a public meeting on August 9, 2018 and blows the whistle on the plant's lack of transparency and lack of safety.

This article is dated prior to the accident, but it does have some interesting information about the containers.
