Fukushima worker accidentally contaminated his own face and inside of the nostrils

On 6/9/2014, Tepco announced they found a sub-contract worker accidentally contaminated his own face and inside of the nostrils.


He was involved in measurement of the pipes. At 11:55 of 6/9/2014, they detected the contamination in seismic isolation building.

It was because he adjusted his full face mask with contaminated gloves.

However, Tepco stated the internal exposure dose for 50 years to come will be only 0.51 mSv from the result of WBC test, which is negligible.

Un travailleur de Fukushima accidentellement contaminé à la figure et à l’intérieur des narines


Le 9 juin 2014, Tepco déclare avoir découvert un travailleur sous-traitant accidentellement contaminé à la figure et à l’intérieur des narines.

Il participait aux relevés autour des canalisations. Le 9 juin 2014 à 11:55, ils relevaient de la radioactivité dans le bâtiment para-sismique.
C’est parce qu’il a ajusté son masque intégral avec des gants contaminés.
Néanmoins, Tepco affirme que sa dose d’exposition interne pour les 50 ans à venir ne sera que de 0,51 mSv selon les résultats de son examen au WBC (= Whole Body Counter = compteur pour le  corps entier), ce qui est négligeable.

About this site

This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
