An ARPNSA report found that Australia & # 39; generally very safe & # 39; despite the & # 39; strict controls & # 39 ;.
Last month, two workers in a nuclear power plant were exposed to a radiation dose similar to cancer therapy while they were working.
A recently opened $ 168 million medical laboratory at the Lucas Heights nuclear facility in southern Sydney was temporarily closed after three workers were exposed to unsafe radiation levels.
Australia has never had a nuclear power plant and the Liberal National Party of Queensland is campaigning against building a nuclear power plant.
The chairman of the Mineral Council, Helen Coonan of the former Howard government, has come forward and said that there should be attention for a nuclear power plant (stock)
