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”.

Cal/OSHA to consider latest CDC mask guidance


The California Division of Occupational Safety and Health is drafting revisions to its emergency temporary standards for COVID-19 workplace safety in light of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s latest guidance that permits vaccinated individuals to forgo masks indoors, according to a Cal/OSHA memo issued Wednesday.

In the memo, Cal/OSHA asked the Occupational Safety and Health Standards Board to postpone its own vote on updating the mask guidance for employers — which would have put employers in line with the CDC and the state’s announcement that mask mandates would be lifted June 15 — and allow it time to “present a new proposal at a future meeting.”

Cal/OSHA said in the memo that it will “limit any potential changes to consideration of the recent guidance, in order to make possible a targeted effective date of June 15.”

The new draft language is expected to be posted on May 28 and a public hearing is slated for June 3, according to an email from Cal/OSHA.
