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”.
The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration on Friday issued a direct final rule clarifying aspects of the beryllium standard for general industry as it applies to processes, operations, or areas where workers may be exposed to materials containing less than 0.1% beryllium by weight.
The rule clarifies the definitions of “beryllium work area,” emergency, dermal contact, and beryllium contamination. It also clarifies provisions for disposal and recycling, and provisions that the Agency intends to apply only where skin can be exposed to materials containing at least 0.1% beryllium by weight., according to the announcement.
The direct final rule will become effective on July 4, unless the Agency receives significant adverse comments by June 4.
Supporters of the current U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration beryllium regulation have vowed to defend the Obama-era version against an attempt by the Trump administration to modify the rule.
