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”.

Wisconsin art supply manufacturer cited over amputation


The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration cited a Wisconsin art supply manufacturing company after a worker’s February amputation injury.

OSHA on Friday announced it cited Appleton-based Dixon Ticonderoga Co. following the workplace incident at the company’s manufacturing plant in Neenah.

Inspectors said the amputation occurred as the worker attempted to clean a press used to imprint images in labeling and packaging processes. The machine lacked required safety guards to protect against amputations, according to OSHA.

The body part amputated was not disclosed.

OSHA cited the company for four serious violations and two repeat violations, saying this was the fourth time in three years the company was cited over similar violations.

The agency proposed $203,806 in penalties. The company, a worldwide supplier of art and education supplies, has 15 business days to contest the citation and fines.
