Radiation in No. 3 reactor too high for work, NHK, June 10, 2011:
The operator of the damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant says radiation levels in one of the reactor buildings remain too high for workers to do their jobs. [...]
The workers withdrew after measuring radiation of 100 millisieverts per hour near the reactor’s containment vessel.
TEPCO says it intended to limit the workers’ exposure to below 5 millisieverts per hour. But as all 9 received higher doses, it has suspended work while considering a course of action.
