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”.

OSHRC commissioners sworn in; back to quorum


Two new commissioners and a new chairman have been sworn into the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission, the commission announced Wednesday.

James Sullivan Jr., who became a commissioner in 2017, has been sworn in as the new chairman, taking the seat from previous Chairwoman Heather MacDougall, who left the board in 2019 to join Inc.’s workplace health and safety group.

Amanda Wood Laihow and Cynthia Attwood, both of whom were nominated by President Trump, have been sworn into the two vacant commission positions. The two were confirmed in the U.S. Senate Jan. 9 along party lines. Since April, the commission has not had a quorum and the OSHRC currently has a backlog of at least 20 cases.

Prior to joining the commission, Mr. Sullivan worked as a labor and employment attorney with Philadelphia-based Cozen O’Connor P.C.

Ms. Laihow previously served as the director of labor and employment policy for the National Association of Manufacturers and also served as deputy general counsel for the U.S. Senate’s Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee.

Ms. Attwood previously served on the OSHRC between 2010 and 2013 following an appointment by President Obama, and again between 2015 and 2017 when she was appointed acting chair. Prior to her involvement with OSRC she worked as an administrative appeals judge for the U.S. Department of Occupational Safety and Health.
