The maximum permissible dose for Japanese nuclear workers was 100 mSv per year before the accident at Fukushima Daiichi. Shortly after the accident, the Japanese government increased the annual limit to 250 mSv for emergency situations. The World Health Organization considers 500 mSv/year acceptable for emergency work.
