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”.

OSHA cites grain cooperative after worker suffers amputation


The Occupational Safety and Health Administration on Monday cited an Illinois grain cooperative after a worker suffered a partial leg amputation while attempting to clean a soybean bin.

OSHA issued citations for four willful violations and one repeat violation to Atlanta, Illinois-based Topflight Grain Cooperative after the 27-year-old worker fell into the bin and was injured by a running paddle conveyor on Aug. 15, 2022. The agency proposed penalties of $629,946.

The cooperative, which was cited for similar violations at a different facility in 2021, has 15 days to contest the latest citations.
