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”.

New law includes warehouse worker safety provisions


Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker signed a budget bill Monday that included provisions addressing the increasingly popular topic of reducing injuries among warehouse workers.

Pritzker signed S.B. 1720, a budget implementation act for fiscal year 2023 that also creates the Warehouse Safety Standards Task Force.

The task force is charged with providing the governor and lawmakers quarterly updates about its findings, discussions and decisions. The group must submit a final report to the governor and General Assembly by Jan. 1, 2025.

The bill does not identify specific issues or topics relating to the safety of warehouse workers for the task force to investigate.
