Highly exposed Fukushima workers significantly increased from April to May

From Tepco’s report published on 6/30/2014, the highly exposed workers in Fukushima increased by 1.8 times this May.

It was the report on Fukushima workers’ exposure dose.

According to Tepco, the number of the workers who had over 10 mSv exposure was 23 in March. It became 19 in April but increased to 34 this May.

Also, the highest exposure dose was 18.49 mSv in March. It became 16.00 mSv in April but increased to 20.70 mSv this May.


All of the highest exposure doses of these 3 months are the readings of sub-contract company workers, not Tepco employees.

All of the workers who had over 10 mSv exposure are also the sub-contract company workers.


Tepco hasn’t made any explanation about what project specifically caused the increase this May.

Le nombre de travailleurs de Fukushima fortement irradiés a gravement augmenté d’avril à mai


Selon le rapport de Tepco publié le 30 juin 2014, le nombre de travailleurs fortement irradiés a été multiplié par 1,8 en mai dernier.
C’est le rapport sur les doses d’irradiation des travailleurs de Fukushima.
Selon Tepco, le nombre de travailleurs ayant reçu plus de 10 mSv était de 23 en mars. Il est passé à 19 en avril mais il est monté à 34 en mai dernier.
En outre, l’irradiation record a été de 18,49 mSv en mars. Il est passé à 16.00 mSv en avril mais à 20,70 mSv en mai.

Tous les records de doses de ces 3 derniers mois concernent des travailleurs des entreprises sous-traitantes, pas des salariés de Tepco. Tous les travailleurs ayant reçu plus de 10 mSv d’irradiation sont également des employés de sous-traitants.

Tepco n’a rien suggéré quant à quel chantier a pu plus particulièrement être à l’origine de cette augmentation en mai.

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.
