Journalist Ryuichi Kino has documents a large number of injuries to workers in 2014 that TEPCO has not made public. The information was submitted to the Agency for Natural Resources and Energy. TEPCO’s excuse seemed to be, if the workers didn’t require an outside ambulance ride or helicopter, they were not going to disclose the injury. But some of these injuries were quite serious. Eighteen required repair of broken bones or sutures. There were also 32 cases of heat stroke, this can be quite serious and was the cause or contributor to the death of a number of workers in the first year of the disaster.
Between April 1, September 23rd, 2014:
· heatstroke 32
– dehydration 5
– unwell 18
– injured 43 (fracture 9, suture treatment 9)
22 people were taken to a hospital
(ambulance 13 times, transport four times by business vehicles, helicopter three times, carrying method unknown 2 times)
