Professor Nominated To Head OSHA

The Las Vegas Sun reported yesterday that George Washington University professor David Michaels will be nominated to be the head of OSHA. The article reports that:

"Michaels, an epidemiologist, has been a notable advocate for workers to be compensated for health risks from chemicals and has also exposed attempts from businesses to block health regulations by making scientific research appear less certain than it is."

"Last year, he published the book 'Doubt is their Product' about industries' use of misleading public relations campaigns to create scientific doubt and block governmental efforts to regulate health risks."
