BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

OSHA renews ties with Mexican consulates in Texas


The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration has renewed its alliance with the Mexican consulates in Austin and El Paso, Texas.

Through the alliance, OSHA provides safety and health outreach and training to Mexican nationals, the administration said Monday in two separate statements.

The voluntary alliance with both offices was renewed for two years and will provide Spanish-speaking employees of U.S. companies with assistance and materials on workers' rights, OSHA standards and other issues, including falls from elevated work surfaces, electrocution and heat illness, according to the statements.

“The alliance with the Mexican consulate provides OSHA with a great opportunity to provide safety training and outreach in a native language in an effort to keep Spanish-speaking workers safe in the workplace,” OSHA said in the statements.

In addition to consulates, OSHA says it also works with businesses, trade associations, unions, professional organizations, faith and community-based organizations, and educational institutions to prevent workplace fatalities, injuries and illnesses.
