Manipulation of the devices in Fukushima


Following some statements of the Japanese media, 10 workers manipulated their measuring devices during their work on the tubes of the nuclear power station of Fukushima.

The workers apparently manipulated their measuring devices covering them with a protection cover made of plumb. In March 2011 Tepco engaged the construction company “Build Up” to make some cleanup efforts and reparation works at the nuclear power station. A construction manager of the company challenged his workers to manipulate the devices, otherwise the maximal limit of irradiation per year would be reached too fast. The workers had to follow the instruction, otherwise they would have lost their job. Some of the workers refused and resigned their job. The Japanese Ministry of Health is checking and verifying the reprovals.
