42 Hanford Workers Exposed

Blowing in the wind: Plutonium at former nuclear weapons site
http://www.latimes.com/local/california/...story.html

Excerpt:

"Tom Carpenter, executive director of the watchdog group Hanford Challenge (http://www.hanfordchallenge.org/), asserts that the demolition project used too many unskilled workers, attempted to do the work too fast and failed to adopt known safety measures that would have helped contain the contamination.

“They took shortcuts and stupid risks,” Carpenter said. “They gambled and lost.”"

16th April 2018 – Contamination from a nuclear cleanup forced a shutdown. Investigators want to know who is responsible

Extracts:

As crews demolished a shuttered nuclear weapons plant during 2017 in central Washington, specks of plutonium were swept up in high gusts and blown miles across a desert plateau above the Columbia River.

The releases at the Department of Energy cleanup site spewed unknown amounts of plutonium dust into the environment, coated private automobiles with the toxic heavy metal and dispensed lifetime internal radioactive doses to 42 workers.

Comment:

“Energy Department officials said in a statement that workers received only a tiny fraction of the plutonium exposure that is allowed by regulations, and there should be no threat to their health.”

There is no safe level of ingested Plutonium. It is one of the most deadly known substances!

It is appalling that "authorities" in these types of events suggest that there's no threat to exposed persons' health.
