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 resumes normal enforcement operations following Hurricane Michael

OSHA resumes normal enforcement operations following Hurricane Michael

The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration has resumed normal enforcement operations throughout Florida following Hurricane Michael, officials announced Monday.

Hurricane Michael came ashore along parts of the Florida panhandle on Oct. 10, 2018, as a Category 4 storm, leveling beach towns and causing damage in the billions of dollars in several Southeastern states.

In the storm’s immediate aftermath, OSHA ceased programmed-planned enforcement inspections in all affected areas, and deployed safety and health professionals to assist employers and workers involved in recovery operations to eliminate serious hazards, according to Monday’s announcement.

OSHA’s response in both Georgia and Florida provided safety and health technical assistance to more than 2,700 workers, and on-site interventions removed more than 1,300 workers from serious hazards, according to the statement.
