Tables with a checkbox column

I have a table which includes a <thead> and a bunch of <th> cells. The
left most column contains checkboxes (one per row) and is used to select
rows. I currently have no content in the left most <th> cell. Is this
considered accessible? If not what is the best practice for this type of
thing, it must be quite a common scenario.
