NY Times Workplace Safety Series Update

Two Cheers for the NY Times:

First, you all know how I complain endlessly about the NY Times' obnoxious practice of making internet readers pay for articles that are more than a week old. Well, the Times has graciously set aside a free site for those who want to read David Barstow's recent "When Workers Die" series, or the "Dangerous Business" series on the McWane Corporation that appeared last January.

All of the articles can be found -- free of cost -- here.

Second, if you click on the series and scroll down a bit, you will notice the "More Resources" on the right-hand side of the page that consists of three items: the OSHA website, the National COSH Network, and, yours truly, Confined Space.

What an intelligent newspaper! A remarkable journal!

(But they really need to stop charging for articles more than a week old.)
