The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry Fukushima Chernobyl Mayak Three Mile Island Atomic Testing Radiation Isotope

Radiation exposure of South African nuclear workers

Koeberg radiation leak being probed: News24: South Africa: News, 15 Oct 10, Pretoria – The National Nuclear Regulator (NNR) says it has launched a probe into an incident last month at Koeberg nuclear power station in which 91 workers were exposed to radiation…….
Greenpeace energy campaigner Rianne Teule said in the organisation’s letter that her main concern was that alarms were not activated in the area where the leak occurred.

She said Eskom did not follow the international nuclear industry practice of setting it as low as reasonably possible.

The release of the radionuclides was only detected when the workers were monitored at the end of their shift.

Teule said it remained unclear how seriously affected the 91 employees were by the leak.…..Koeberg radiation leak being probed: News24: South Africa: News
