Lost dosimeters

Lax use of dosimeters



[second part of the Japan Times article]



Tokyo Electric Power Co. says workers at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant have lost 20 dosimeters since June 2011, while eight others were found not to be attached to work suits.

Workers at the plant, crippled by the natural disasters in March 2011, must carry dosimeters attached to their work clothes under rules set by the health ministry.

"At the time, we thought there was no problem, but clearly there was insufficient supervision," Tepco said Thursday after it learned of the misplaced dosimeters.

According to the company, the workers who lost dosimeters were hired by contractors and subcontractors. Only three of the devices have been recovered.
