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”.

Oklahoma lawmakers seek parameters on cumulative trauma

repetitive stress

Oklahoma lawmakers are set to consider a bill that would provide limits on when a cumulative trauma workers compensation claim can be filed.

S.B. 411, scheduled to be introduced Feb. 6, would amend state law to say the “date of injury for cumulative trauma shall be the last date of injurious exposure prior to the filing date of the Employee’s First Notice of Claim for Compensation.”

Under existing law, employees or surviving family members must file their claim within six months after the first distinct manifestation of the disease or cumulative trauma or within six months after death.
