Keeping firmly in mind that the safety of the workers and employees who are involved in the decommissioning operation is the highest priority, we are addressing the improvement of their work environment to increase efficiency through the reduction of exposure via decontamination, etc. and the reduction of their workload by simplifying protective equipment, and ensuring the thorough provision of facilities to support their physical and mental well being.
Many workers and operators are engaged in the decommissioning project over medium to long term period, and we believe that ensuring their safety and providing them with a better work environment are essential for the success of this project. And in cooperation with them, we will address the acceleration of the work on site and improve reliability.
TEPCO has been managing the exposure dose of workers at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station, so that workers at the site can feel secure. We will continue our effort to reduce the exposure dose as much as possible.
TEPCO evaluates the exposure dose of workers and submits the results to the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare every month.

*The dose limit specified by law is 100mSv/5years・50mSv/year. To average 100mSv/5years, the value by year is 20mSv, and the value by month is 1.71mSv.
(Note) The values of the exposure dose in the table above are
subject to change, because there are times when APD
data are replaced with monthly dose data measured by
integral dosimeters. Or dose data of workers who wore
only an integral dosimeter (ex.,workers who entered only
the Main Anti-earthquake Building) need to be updated in
the table after its publication.
