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”.

Texas company cited after worker’s fatal forklift fall


The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has cited a San Antonio wire drawing company after a worker suffered a fatal fall from a forklift in February.

OSHA on Monday announced it cited WMC San Antonio LLC after inspectors learned the company allowed employees to ride atop an unsecured, site-made forklift attachment while moving wire-mesh bundles at its plant.

The worker who died was transporting bundles to flat-bed trailers when the attachment from the forklift slid off the forks and caused the fatal fall, according to OSHA.

OSHA cited the company for one willful violation for failing to provide fall protection for employees working up to 13 feet and one willful violation for exposing workers to fall and struck-by hazards.

OSHA issued proposed penalties of $299,339.

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