Over 3,000 workers at Fukushima Daiichi have no dosimetry records

Some 3,077 workers at TEPCO’s crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant have no records of the radiation levels that they may have been exposed to during the first 3 weeks of the nuclear disaster.  These workers were dispatched in work groups, with only representatives of the entire group wearing dosimeters.

Earlier this summer, it was discovered that other workers had covered their dosimeters with lead shields to lower their recorded radiation exposures in order to not exceed the national limits.
