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”.

Wooden post maker cited in partial hand amputation

Wooden post maker cited in partial hand amputation

U.S. workplace safety regulators cited a Georgia wooden post manufacturer and proposed $109,548 in fines after an employee suffered a partial hand amputation and other injuries while working on unguarded machinery.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration cited Homerville, Georgia-based Dupont Yard Inc. for allowing employees to operate unguarded machinery and failing to have an emergency stop switch on a conveyor, exposing employees to caught-in and amputation hazards, according to a statement issued on Monday.

"This employer's disregard for safety is leaving employees vulnerable to preventable hazards,” Margo Westmoreland, OSHA Savannah, Georgia, area office director, said in the statement.

A company spokesperson could not be immediately reached for comment.
