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”.

HSE fines steelmaker £1.3 million for blast deaths


PORT TALBOT, United Kingdom—The Health and Safety Executive has fined steelmaker Corus U.K. Ltd. £1.333 million ($2.6 million) for the deaths of three workers in a blast at its Port Talbot site in Wales in 2001.

Corus was fined £1.333 million and ordered to pay £1.74 million ($3.31 million)in costs following charges brought by the HSE under the 1974 Health and Safety Act.

In Swansea Crown Court, the company pleaded guilty to two charges of failing to ensure the safety of its employees and others.

The blast in a furnace at Corus' Port Talbot plant on November 8, 2001, was the result of "systematic corporate management failure at the Port Talbot works," the HSE's director for Wales, Terry Rose, said in a statement.
