I don’t know about you but I’ve been watching The Simpsons since day one…
Homer is quite possibly the greatest TV character ever created.
And I love the long-standing joke that such a bumbling idiot is responsible for the lives of every single resident in Springfield…
As the healthy and safety chief at the nuclear power plant.
But, what you may not realise…
Is there are more Homer Simpson’s than you may think in the nuclear industry…
And a catalogue of errors gained media attention in the UK recently.
Crazy stuff like:
- A worker touching radioactive powder… and then licking his fingers.
- Radioactive liquid spilling onto the floor of a lorry after leaking out of the ordinary plastic bags it was being carried in.
- In 2006 a wooden box flown in from Africa was labelled “empty” when it contained radioactive selenium.
- In 2009 a package of medical grade radioactive material was sent to the wrong country and lost for three days.
- The same year also saw a passer-by open a case of radioactive material casually left on a grass verge.
What’s really scary is these are just a handful of the 153 “serious” cases in the past five years alone.
Who knows how many “potentially” serious cases have been swept under the carpet…
Or not even recorded at all!
