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”.

Congress to consider expanding beryllium exposure bill for workers


The U.S. Senate on Thursday read through legislation that would expand the federal occupational illness program for energy workers.

S. 4928, which was referred to the Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions, would amend the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act of 2000 to expand the ways beryllium sensitivity can be established for purposes of compensation.

The bill would also extend the authorization of the Advisory Board on Toxic Substances and Worker Health of the Department of Labor.

No further details on the legislation were available as of Friday.
