Feb. 9, 2013 tweet by @Happy11311 translated by EXSKF:

In order to compliment the remote work, visual inspection is necessary. So, workers wearing heavy tungsten vests take turns to go up on the platform, and communicate with the remote control operators to carry out the work. Workers who go up on the platform are exposed to significant amount of radiation. [...]

Tweet translated by Fukushima Diary:

To support camera, we absolutely need visual observation. Human workers with heavy tungsten vest step up on assembly base by turns. They communicate with remote controlling operators. Those workers are severely exposed on the assembly base.
