Fukushima : 40% des premiers liquidateurs n'avaient pas de dosimètre

Or il ne portait pas de dosimètre, et cet homme dans la trentaine s’inquiète de ce qu’un éventuel futur cancer soit reconnu comme maladie professionnelle. Tepco, l’opérateur de la centrale, indique que 7.766 personnes ont travaillé sur le site de Fukushima n° 1 entre le 15 mars et le 31 mars 2011, dont 3.077 (39,6%) n’avaient pas de dosimètre. Pendant ces 17 jours, seul un représentant de chaque groupe de travail portait un appareil, et tous les membres du groupe devaient reporter sur leur registre la même indication que sur son dosimètre. C’était une mesure d’urgence expliquée par le fait que la plupart des 5.000 dosimètres de la centrale avaient été emportés par le tsunami.

Chernobyl and Eastern Europe Blog: Nuclear Accidents Archives

A friend passed along some information that France’s Tricastin nuclear facility has been temporarily closed after approximately 30 cubic meters (75 kilograms) of liquid containing unenriched uranium spilled from an overflowing reservoir. The liquid seeped into the ground and also reached the Gaffiere and Lauzon rivers. The Tricastin facility, which is operated by Areva/Socatri, is located at Bollene in the south of France, 40 km from the tourist city Avignon. Tricastin has both nuclear reactors and a radioactive waste treatment plant. The leak occurred Monday night, but people in the affected areas were not told about the problem until 10:00 AM Tuesday. People in nearby towns have been warned not to drink water or eat fish caught in the rivers since Monday.
