The worker is male in 50s. He repaired the machine for debris removal and contaminated water from 4. 2011 to 1. 2015. He developed leukemia in 1. 2015.

The integral exposure dose was 54.4 mSv. He was wearing the whole surface mask, shielding vest of lead and protective clothing. According to MHLW’s safety regulation, 100 mSv of integral exposure dose per nuclear worker is allowed every 5 years.

There have been only 2 cases approved as industrial accident. 9 other cases were applied so far but 5 of these are still under investigation and the rests are not paid.
