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”.

Liberty Mutual app aims to help prevent overexertion injuries


Liberty Mutual Holding Co. Inc. released an app to help policyholders protect workers from the most expensive workplace injuries, the Boston-based insurer announced Tuesday.

The ErgoValuator app, created in partnership with Kinetica Labs Inc., can determine the potential for tasks to cause overexertion injuries, which cost employers more than $14 billion annually.

By using a video of a worker performing a task and answering a few questions about the job, the app can determine the likelihood of the task injuring the worker. This enables employers to adjust the task and reevaluate the process to confirm that it can be performed safely.
