NY Times Author to Deliver Upton Sinclair Lecture

AIHce's annual Upton Sinclair Memorial Lecture, hosted by the Social Concerns Committee, is designed to feature outstanding occupational health, safety, and environmental investigative journalism. This year's lecture features Steven Greenhouse of the New York Times. His presentation, "The Journalist's Role in Keeping an Eye on the American Workplace," will take place Tuesday from 10:30 - 11:30 a.m. in the convention center, Room 106.

As Greenhouse notes, safety and health on the job have been a fundamental right for American workers since the OSH Act was passed in 1970, yet many workers face serious safety problems and some employers still engage in shocking practices, such as locking workers in at night.

Greenhouse will discuss several model employers as well as several who treat their workers poorly and often break the law, as detailed in his award-winning book The Big Squeeze. Other topics will include the terrible problems injured employees face in obtaining fair and timely worker's compensation, based on an 18-month investigative report Greenhouse coauthored for the . He also will address journalists' role in covering occupational safety and health, and relations between business and the new media.
