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 cites contractor for lack of fall protection

OSHA cites contractor for lack of fall protection

Federal workplace safety regulators have cited a Florida residential framing contractor for failing to use a guardrail, safety net or personal fall arrest systems and proposed $48,778 in fines.

The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration inspected and cited Melbourne, Florida-based Bluewater Construction Solutions Inc. as part of the agency's Regional Emphasis Program for Falls in Construction, according to a statement published Tuesday.

“Employers are required to install fall protection systems when employees work at heights of 6 feet or above,” Condell Eastmond, OSHA Fort Lauderdale area office director, said in the statement. “This employer is putting workers at risk of serious injury by failing to comply with these standards.”

A company spokesperson could not be reached for comment.
