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”.

Michigan businesses fined for workplace COVID-19 violations


The Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration has fined nine businesses for failing to protect workers from COVID-19, the agency announced Friday.

MIOSHA inspected and found the businesses in violation of the Occupational Safety and Health Act’s general duty clause, which requires employers to provide a workplace free from recognized hazards that may cause, or are likely to cause, death or serious physical harm to workers.

The employers included four automotive service centers, two hospitality businesses, a furniture store, a tanning salon and a signage and graphics company. Fines ranged from $400 to $3,500 for violations including a lack of COVID-19 training, failure to disinfect frequently touched surfaces, and failing to conduct daily health screenings and enforce mask mandates and social distancing.
