Naomi Hirose, the recently appointed president of the Tokyo Electric Power Co., or TEPCO, has outlined new safety procedures for operating the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant. He has also vowed to try to overcome deep public distrust in his company.

Naomi Hirose, president of Tokyo Electric Power Company, says, "We have to make every effort and then take into serious consideration for our customers' criticisms and opinions and then incorporate them into management or daily operations."

Naomi Hirose asked TEPCO workers to be more conscious of people's feelings and worries about the plant's condition, and required detailed reports on the power station.

He mentioned that the main task now is to remove the debris from the spent fuel pool, which will require outside help and resources.
