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”.
U.S. workplace safety regulators have cited a Florida underground utility construction company for exposing employees to cave-in hazards and proposed $138,927 in penalties.
The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration cited Daytona Beach, Florida-based P&S Paving Inc. for allowing employees to work in a trench without cave-in protection, according to a statement Thursday. The company was also cited for failing to train employees on trench hazards and provide a safe means to enter and exit the trench.
“Employers performing trenching and excavation are required to use appropriate protective systems to prevent a serious or fatal cave-in,” Brian Sturtecky, OSHA Jacksonville area office director, said in the statement.
A company spokesperson could not be immediately reached for comment.
A Florida utilities contractor is facing $271,606 in proposed penalties and has been deemed a severe violator of federal workplace safety rules for exposing employees to trenching hazards.
