Many Fukushima workers overexposed to radiation

mdsolar writes "Six more employees of Tokyo Electric Power Co. working at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant were exposed to more radiation than allowed even under the relaxed limits put in place to deal with the critical accident.

In addition, 102 workers have been exposed to more radiation than allowed for nuclear power plant workers. Such workers are subsequently prohibited from working at nuclear power plants for up to five years under normal circumstances.

If more workers are discovered to have exceeded radiation exposure levels, TEPCO may face a serious shortage of workers even while the situation at the Fukushima plant is far from under control."
