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”.

Transportation leads causes of death at work: CDC


ATLANTA--Transportation-related injuries remain the most common source of workplace fatalities, according to an analysis published by the Centers for Disease Control on Friday.

The CDC's April 6 Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report said that about 43% of fatal work-related injuries stemmed from transportation mishaps in 2005, the last year for which data is available. It noted that highway incidents were the leading cause of fatal occupational injury during the period 1992 to 2005.

"To reduce the number of workplace deaths, transportation measures targeting workers (e.g. truck safety and highway work-zone safety) should be enhanced by state and local transportation agencies and coordinated with highway-safety measures for the general public," the CDC recommended.
