Japan mulling new credentials for nuclear workers

Japan - Fukushima Daiichi - Decontamination - Decommissioning
Members of the Liberal Democratic Party, the ruling party in Japan, are discussing the establishment of new credentials for workers who clean up radioactive debris or decommission nuclear power plants.
The discussions revolve around the establishment of three levels of national certifications which focus on three areas, decontamination, reactor maintenance, and radiation monitoring.
Officials say that it is important to raise the skill of nuclear industry employees as this will not only help improve overall safety but also to help reduce worker exposures at nuclear power facilities.
