Excessive radiation risks for Fukushima workers

Text size Aa Aa

TEPCO claim that two workers at the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant may have exceeded the government’s radiation exposure limit, adding to the health concerns of those working to stabilise the facility.

The government and TEPCO have come under fire for not disclosing enough information about the radiation risks. Some have questioned if workers had been fully informed of the potential dangers.

The Japanese government is due to receive an International Atomic Energy Agency report on the state of the plant after an 18-member team conducted an inspection of the site.

The plant is still leaking radiation, but at lower levels than previously reported.
