Fukushima nuclear plant worker files labor complaint over lack of harzard warning

Fukushima nuclear plant worker files labor complaint over lack of harzard warning

Previous ArticleMinistry finds sloppy Fukushima dose monitoring

November 01, 2012

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

IWAKI, Ibaraki Prefecture--The operator of a Japanese nuclear plant that went into a tsunami-triggered meltdown knew the risks from highly radioactive water at the site but sent in crews without adequate protection or warnings, a worker said in a legal complaint.

The actions by Tokyo Electric Power Co. led to radiation injuries, said the contract worker, who was with a six-member team working at the crippled Fukushima No. 1 plant's Unit 3 reactor in the early days of last year's crisis.

The worker gave a rare public account of what happened at the plant during the accident. He spoke to The Associated Press on the condition that he be identified only as Shinichi, his given name.

Shinichi, 46, described a harrowing scene of darkness and fear, wading with headlamps into a flooded basement through steaming radioactive water that felt warm even through workers' boots.

“It was outrageous. We shouldn't even have been there,” he said.

He said his six-member team was sent to lay electric cables in the basement of the Unit 3 turbine on March 24, 10 days after its reactor building exploded, spewing massive amounts of radiation into the environment. Their mission was to restore power to pumps to inject cooling water into its overheating spent fuel pool.

Shinichi said TEPCO and its primary subcontractor never warned them even though water leaks had been found elsewhere at the plant.

Asked about Shinichi's allegations, TEPCO spokesman Yoshimi Hitosugi said the plant was aware of water leaks elsewhere but couldn't anticipate the water problem in Unit 3's basement.

Shinichi's radiation exposure that day alone exceeded half the government's annual exposure limit, and he had to stop working on plant jobs soon afterward.

Press Release (Oct 31,2012)
Exposure Dose Evaluation of the Workers at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station

Today we submitted a report on the exposure dose evaluation as of the end of September 2012 to the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare.

- The number of workers newly engaged in September was 397. The maximum external exposure dose was 18.57mSv, and no significant value was measured for the internal exposure.

- The exposure dose status of the "workers exposed to specially high radiation dose*" is provided separately.

The exposure dose evaluation result as of the end of October will be reported to the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare by the end of November.

* The workers who applied Emergency dose limit (100mSv) shown in "Ordinance on Prevention of Ionizing Radiation Hazards, chapter 7." Specifically, it means the workers who engaged in the work to maintain the function that cooling reactor facility or spent fuel tank at the area where the radiation dose exceed 0.1 mSv /h and reactor facility, steam turbine and related facilities and surrounding area in the power plant or the work to maintain the function to control or prevent release of huge amount radioactive material due to trouble or break of reactor facility.

Attachment: "Exposure Dose Distribution" (PDF 18.7KB)

In this Attachment for September
we can see the Data and it is very low,
there is no one above 20 Millisievert,
27 are in between 10-20 Millisievert
and the absolute Majority is under 10 Millisievert!

The max. allowed Dosage is 250 Millisievert!

Ex-nuclear plant worker accuses employer
A former worker at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant has filed a criminal complaint against a subcontractor. He says the company knowingly instructed him to work in a dangerously contaminated zone in the plant.

The 46-year-old whistleblower worked at the crippled plant in March and April last year.

At a news conference with his lawyer on Thursday, the man said he was instructed with 5 others to lay cable in the basement of the No. 3 reactor and turbine building on March 24th.

The radiation at the basement was an extremely high 400 millisieverts an hour, and workers employed by Tokyo Electric Power Company evacuated.

But he says subcontractor Kandenko told him to stay. He refused the order and moved to work on the first floor. He was exposed there to radiation of about 11 millisieverts over an hour.

The former worker says Kandenko violated the Industrial Safety and Health Law, protecting workers.

TEPCO slashes loss forecast after cost-cutting and asset sales
TOKYO — TEPCO, the operator of Japan’s crippled Fukushima nuclear plant, on Wednesday dramatically slashed its fiscal-year loss projection, citing asset sales and cost-cutting for the change.

The utility said it now expects to lose 45 billion yen this year instead of the 160 billion yen initially forecast, although it still faces huge post-disaster compensation costs and higher power generation expenses, despite a government bailout and a price hike.

It also said its losses narrowed to 299.48 billion yen for the six months to September, compared with 627.3 billion yen in the same period of 2011.

The company was effectively nationalised after receiving 1 trillion yen of taxpayer money to stay in business this year as it struggled to survive after the meltdown at its Fukushima Daiichi plant that followed the quake-tsunami disaster on March 11, 2011.

Japan Nuclear Fuel unveils plutonium fuel plant under construction
Japan Nuclear Fuel Ltd. on Thursday unveiled to reporters its plant for producing so-called MOX nuclear fuel under construction in the village of Rokkasho in northern Japan.

Its construction in Aomori Prefecture began in October 2010 but was suspended for about a year after the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami disaster hit northeastern Japan. Work resumed in April but the facility is only about 3 percent complete.

Protecting nuclear plants from nature’s worst
[link to www.washingtonpost.com]

[snip]

Equally striking, our data also suggest that several U.S. nuclear power plants are unprepared for high waves. In our database, the United States came in second, behind Japan, as the country with the largest number of inadequately protected nuclear power plants. The 1938 New England hurricane triggered a storm surge as high as 25 to 30 feet, considerably higher than waves generated this week by Sandy. A wave that tall would easily overtake many nuclear power plants on the East Coast, which on average lie about 20 feet above sea level, with minimal sea wall protection.

According to our data, the U.S. nuclear power plants most vulnerable to inundation are the Salem and Hope Creek plants on the New Jersey/Delaware border; the Millstone plant in Connecticut; and the Seabrook plant in New Hampshire. All of these are close to large cities: The Salem and Hope Creek plants are about 90 miles from Washington and about 35 miles from Philadelphia. The Millstone plant is about 40 miles from Hartford, Conn., and 100 miles from New York City. The Seabrook plant is about 35 miles from Boston. As points of reference, consider that the U.S. government recommended a 50-mile evacuation radius during the Fukushima disaster, and Tokyo is about 140 miles away from the Fukushima Daiichi site.

The threat posed by extreme weather is not hypothetical. In 1999, waves caused by high tide and a storm surge breached the sea wall at the Blayais nuclear power plant in France, cutting off external power and knocking out several pieces of equipment. That incident did not result in a major accident, but the outcome could have been much worse. Blayais is situated on a river adjacent to the ocean, and it was protected by a 17-foot sea wall at the time of the accident. The Salem and Hope Creek nuclear plants similarly lie slightly inland on the Delaware River, but the plants would be threatened with inundation if wave heights exceed 11 feet.

Special Edition Podcast: After Hurricane Sandy - Questions and Answers About What Happened

In this special edition question & answer podcast, Gundersen and Hurley discuss what effects Hurricane Sandy had on U.S. nuclear power plants, especially Oyster Creek. Gundersen explains how spent fuel pools are not configured to be cooled with diesel power in the event of a loss of offsite power. Oyster Creek and several other nuclear power plants did lose offsite power and Thomson Reuters reports that they may use fire pumps to cool the pools.

“I think this is the accident that happened in insufficient safety precaution and we consider this as a manmade disaster,” Katsutaka Idogawa, mayor of Futaba where the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant is located, said at a meeting held in the U.N. Office in Geneva.
”There are some people who speak as if the accident has been contained but the reality is the contrary,” he said.


“Although we had unwanted exposure to the radiation, we never heard any apology from anyone. This feeling I have will never be cleared and this is an unforgivable murder’s act,” he said.

Bulgaria Will Hold Referendum on Nuclear Plant Jan. 27
Bulgaria will hold a referendum on whether to build a new nuclear plant on Jan. 27, President Rosen Plevneliev said in e-mailed statement today.

Prime Minister Boiko Borissov’s Cabinet canceled on March 28 a 10 billion-euro ($12.25 billion) project to build a 2,000- megawatt nuclear power plant at Belene with Rosatom Corp., Russia’s state nuclear company, after failing to agree on its cost and find Western investors.

The move caused criticism from the opposition socialist party, which said the government deprived the country from an electricity source. Rosatom filed a 1 billion-euro claim on Sept. 11 with the International Court of Arbitration in Paris to cover construction work and production costs on the canceled project.
