Original title: Two employees of Fukushima nuclear power plant were exposed to nuclear radiation?

According to Japan’s Kyodo News Agency, Tokyo Electric Power Company announced on the 22nd that two employees of the company’s maintenance operations at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant were suspected of being exposed to nuclear radiation. Both men were men in their 40s. They had to replace pipes in the nuclear wastewater treatment facility of the nuclear power plant on the morning of the 19th. During the post-event inspection, radioactive materials were detected in the nasal cavity of the two.

Japan’s Asahi Shimbun reported that the employees who carried out the operation should wear full-protection masks and protective clothing that cover their faces, but the actual workers only used simple equipment such as dust masks and work clothes at the time. According to TEPCO, the two received a very small amount of nuclear radiation. After a doctor’s examination, their bodies were normal. They will be investigated in detail through urine tests.

According to Kyodo News, the work clothes of two other male employees at the scene were found to be contaminated with radioactive materials. It is possible that when the pipe was replaced, the dust with radioactive material scattered. In addition, 2 of the 4 persons did not register their names on the roster of operators. TEPCO stated that it will investigate the reasons and management system in detail.
