An Employees Negligence May Shut Down the World’s Biggest Nuclear Plant Forever

Many mishaps took place at the World’s biggest Nuclear plant due to which it has been shuttered down. The safety concerns have also arisen at the Kashiwazaki-Kariwa nuclear power plant in Japan’s Niigata prefecture. In a recent incident, it has been reported that a careless employee lost the documents.

In a significant setback for Tepco, the employee in question inadvertently left a stack of important documents on the roof of their car before driving off, resulting in the loss of the papers. This incident further undermines the confidence of regulators in Tepco’s ability to adhere to safety protocols.

When the Nuclear Regulation Authority of Japan got to know about this incident, they decided to shut down the Nuclear Plant. The authority is known to take safety measures for the 33 reactors present in the country. They’ve shut down the World’s Biggest Nuclear Plant due to lack of preventive measures.

The gravity of the situation became evident when a concerned local resident discovered some of the misplaced papers, which were crucial for addressing potential fires and floods. As of now, Tepco is still attempting to recover 38 pages of the lost documents. Both the employee responsible for the mishap and their manager have received reprimands, and Tepco has pledged to enforce stricter rules regarding the handling of sensitive documents outside company premises.
