TEPCO has released new worker exposure information. It shows about what would be expected. Most of the current exposures were in the lower ranges with most being under 20 mSv for any one month.
They also showed internal and external exposure estimates for the full time range of the disaster that showed larger increases in the lower brackets and with contractors taking the bulk of the exposure increases. The other charts again showed the bulk of the exposures being taken by the contract workers at the plant. While that is a given since the bulk of the workers there are contractors it creates a problem as most of these workers do not qualify for long term health care or similar benefits.
