For Your Information (FYI):
“The United States and Vietnam Tuesday signed a deal on civilian nuclear energy that will allow the US to transfer technology and sell its reactors to the Southeast Asian nation.
However, the world is still reeling from the Fukushima nuclear energy disaster in Japan, and we may want to remember that “one ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” and that “homeless” people will not always be available to be recruited by “Yakuzas” to do the dirty work of others……
“To fully decommission Fukushima Daiichi might take 40 years and no one expects a cakewalk. Independent researchers point to the litany of mishaps that has blighted the cleanup. They doubt the plant’s operator Tokyo Electric Power (Tepco) is up to the task, and want a global team of experts to take over. “
What is the scariest is that all this happens in Japan, the country that, supposedly re-wrote global “Quality” management and methods and procedures handbooks, following “Deming”, “Juran”, “Toyota Production System(TPS)”,”Kaizen”, (“5S”, “JIT”, “Kanban”, “Poka Yoke”, “Andon”, etc).
With the traditional “dedication” of Japan’s culture, even though “Lean” and “Six Sigma”, “BPI”,”BPM”,”BPO”, “BPR”, “Value Streams” are “Kaizen” “culture” “little brothers” spreading worldwide; If it can happen in Japan, it can happen, with even more probability, anywhere in the world, if Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) methods and procedures and organizational accuracy and safety are not implemented, unfortunately….….
For most people the discipline required is not in their DNA…….
