OSHA Whistleblower Adam Finkel To Speak In New York

If you're in the neighborhood next Monday, OSHA whistleblower Adam Finkel will be speaking at the St Johns University School of Law, 8000 Utopia Parkway, Jamaica, NY.

Finkel, as you may remember, was removed from his job as OSHA Regional Administrator in Denver because he revealed that OSHA had abandoned its plan to screen its inspectors for beryllium disease. OSHA eventually agreed to the tests and several employees have been affected by exposure to the deadly metal.

Finkel will talk about his experiences as a scientist and advocate for worker and public health. He is currently Visiting Professor of Public Affairs,Woodrow Wilson School, Princeton University and Professor of Environmental and Occupational Health, UMDNJ School of Public Health.
