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”.
Since the start of the pandemic through Dec. 17, the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration says it has issued $3.7 million in penalties from citations arising from 278 inspections of workplaces charged with various violations, according to a statement issued Wednesday.
OSHA, in its latest statement tallying fines, named five of the most recent citations with fines ranging from $1,928 to $13,494. Three of the businesses cited are nursing homes.
The COVID-19-related OSHA citations stem from a number of violations, including failures to implement a written respiratory protection program; failures to provide a medical evaluation, respirator fit test, and training on the proper use of a respirator and personal protective equipment; failures to report an injury, illness or fatality, including failures to record such on recordkeeping forms; and failing to comply with the General Duty Clause of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, which requires employers to maintain a safe workplace, according to the announcement.
