The Synergist Newswire primarily serves as a conduit to reporting on topics related to industrial hygiene and occupational health and safety by media organizations. The articles included in Newswire are chosen from a variety of sources to reflect media coverage of the IH and OHS industries. Each issue of the e-newsletter provides a recap of relevant stories from recent weeks.
Past issues of Newswire have directed readers to articles at NBC News about valley fever among California farmworkers; at Medical Xpress about the link between an epidemic of chronic kidney disease among agricultural workers and increasingly hot temperatures; at The New Yorker about noise pollution and public health; and at Chemical & Engineering News about a new step that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recently added to its chemical decontamination guidance. Links to relevant blog posts and other nontraditional media are also included. Readers of Newswire learn how the larger world views issues of interest to the IH and OHS professions.
