What we’re reading: OSHA, reform and a new site

These are busy times for AHCJ (getting ready for Health Journalism 2010!) but we want to take a moment to share some of what we’re reading:

OMBWatch: OSHA Proposal Cuts Workers’ Right to Know about Chemical Risks

PLoS ONE: The Unbearable Lightness of Health Science Reporting: A Week Examining Italian Print Media

FairWarning.org launches: New site to investigate health, safety and corporate conduct issues was founded by former Los Angeles Times reporters.

Poynter’s Al Tompkins has an interview with ProPublica’s Charles Ornstein (also president of AHCJ’s board of directors) about investigating nurses and regulatory boards.

Health care reform: What’s next? Reporters Jim Landers, Washington correspondent for The Dallas Morning News, and Noam Levey, health policy reporter for the Los Angeles Times/Tribune Washington Bureau, have advice on how to cover the local angles of health reform. Suggestions from other reporters will be added soon.
