I was employed by a subcontractor of Tepco.

I was asked to write a fake CV by the contracting company.

I was told my duty was to be logistical support. But the reality was to work at the highly radioactive area (over 1 milliSv/hr).

Most of the workers come from all over Japan as a day laborer.

Underage workers (18 & 19 years old) are also employed.

These are just ordinary people without good knowledge of radiation. The fake CV establishes them as an experienced worker and they are sent to the Fuksuhima Daiichi NPP.

    The workers or union should have a booklet on safety with radiation and unstable building info, what to be aware of while working. This should have little or no input from TEPCO. They should also be given a map showing where high radiation is suspected or is known.

      Richard your points are right on. TEPCO has left the reservation completely. Normal standard procedure and a part of their licence is that all workers will be trained in radiation safety. Before working on any job they should be given a map of the work area, the radiation levels, and the protective clothing that is required on the RWP-radiation work permit. When they are working in any high radiation area (100 millirem or greater)they should also be escorted by a radiation safety tech, who will monitor the work area during work.
      That is standard in every plant without exception, and used be be true at Fukushima. I can not express how pissed off I am at TEPCO for having zero concern for worker safety.

    If the truth be known, you could not find anybody in their right mind to work there, that is why they are using the margins of society sad.
    Fully protected in their tyvac suits and paper masks.
    Their must be another way, no matter what people are going to be exposed, we need truth and parameters to protect the workers, as in the future we will need many more just to mitigate, never to be fully cleaned up.
    Stop all fission ASAP we neither fully understand it to control it, be logical please.

    Get a load of those paper masks. They are open on the sides, so that as they breathe, air is pulled in without filtration. These masks couldn't stop a hotparticle on a bet. Think of the internal dose these men get in even one day at Fuku! No wonder they have recruitment problems. This shows clearly that management has no concern for the welfare of these workers.

    Maybe they should send all the nuclear lobbyists to work at Fukushima:

    Let them put their 'money where their mouths' are.

    "The Monday after Fukushima, the Nuclear Energy Institute flooded Capitol Hill with every lobbyist they could get their hands on, and they were all screaming the same thing — that U.S. reactors are safe," said Dan Hirsch, president of the Los Angeles–based nuclear-watchdog group Committee to Bridge the Gap."
