Fukushima Daiichi:Learning from Chernobyl (01/22/2014)


NHK: Decommissioning [Chernobyl] could take a century […] This edition of ‘Nuclear Watch’ is looking at how people tied to the cleanup of the Fukushima accident here in Japan are trying to learn lessons from Chernobyl […]

Professor Ryuji Okazaki, adviser to Japanese government on how to protect workers from radiation: “We really want to learn from what you’re doing here in the Ukraine.”

NHK: A government official told Okazaki, “Our practices are based on lessons from the past.” […] They periodically check for more than 200 types of illnesses including heart disease. Doctors also focus on the eyes […] they monitor balance, too. […] The situation is quite different at Fukushima Daiichi. Screening of workers is left up to the contractors […] they are not obliged to submit data to the plant’s operator or any national institution. Professor Okazaki says Japan has much to learn from what’s happening at Chernobyl.

Professor Okazaki: […] Ukraine provides an example we should follow.

NHK: Okazaki says Japanese leaders should introduce a centralized system to collect health data right away.
