N-worker's mask left no room for glasses

The Yomiuri Shimbun

Wearing eyeglasses behind his safety mask contributed to a worker at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant receiving more than double the maximum allowed dose of radiation, according to a Tokyo Electric Power Co. investigation.

TEPCO said the man's eyeglasses prevented his protective mask from forming a tight seal against his face, enabling radioactive substances to get in.

The man, in his 30s, was exposed to 678 millisieverts of radiation while working at the plant in the days after the Great East Japan Earthquake. The upper limit for an emergency worker is cumulative exposure of 250 millisieverts.

Another man, in his 40s, who worked at the plant at the same time was exposed to 643 millisieverts.
