Root Cause in Nuclear Power

I'll start this off...
1. Industry: commercial nuclear power generation.
2. RCA Issues: Anything and everything, depending on significance or risk of a problem. (Personnel safety, equipment problems, process deficiencies, organizational issues, project / work management failures, etc.)

4. RCA Supported: Yes, very much so. Our regulators and industry peers demand as much. We take it pretty seriously. (We have to.).
