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”.

Construction company cited for failing to protect against fall hazards


The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration has cited a Texas construction company for endangering workers by not providing adequate fall protection systems.

OSHA on Wednesday announced it cited Houston-based Sonny Steel Erectors Inc. for one serious violation, one willful violation and one repeat violation after inspectors discovered employees working on erecting a steel building in Cypress in February did not have proper fall protection.

OSHA proposed $266,416 in penalties.

The company has 15 business days to contest the citations and fines.

OSHA said it cited the company for similar workplace safety violations in 2019, 2020 and 2022, and that the latest inspection found the contractor failed to correct hazards associated with violations that date from 2011.
