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”.

Furniture company again cited over amputation risks

furniture manufacturer

A Temple, Texas-based furniture manufacturer that was cited by federal safety regulators for the third time in six years over amputation hazards at its facility faces $250,000 in fines.

The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration said Wednesday that in April a worker at MoorCo Inc. suffered a broken finger when the employee’s hand was caught in a machine that had had safety guards removed. The worker was feeding raw materials into a process line that glued furniture parts, the OSHA statement said.

Following an inspection, OSHA cited MoorCo for violations related to energy control, failing to follow lockout/tagout procedures and failing to provide machine guarding.

OSHA cited the company for similar violations in 2015 and 2018.
