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”.

Walk this way to penguin exhibit and in your workplace


According to Pinnacol Assurance safety consultant Randy Philabaum, slips, trips and falls rank among the top workplace risks for Colorado businesses. A recent study of Pinnacol's data claims from January 2017 through March 2021 found that 40% of all claims result from slipping.

To mitigate these risk hazards and navigate icy surfaces, Mr. Philabaum says workers should take some notes from the penguins at the new Denver Zoo exhibit, Pinnacol African Penguin Point.

"When we mimic how penguins walk – short shuffles, angled feet, outstretched limbs – we can stay on our feet better and avoid a dangerous fall," says Mr. Philabaum.

Pinnacol, Colorado’s largest workers comp insurer, announced Wednesday its sponsorship of the Zoo’s newest addition – a $1.7 million penguin exhibit, featuring a 10,000-gallon swimming pool, multiple burrows and nesting areas, and nearly 85 linear feet of underwater viewing areas.

Pinnacol African Penguin Point is home to 18 endangered African penguins, most of whom were born in Denver after the zoo’s animal care team traveled to South Africa to help conserve the species 20 years ago.

Denver Zoo has been a policyholder with Pinnacol Assurance for more than 20 years.
