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”.

Reprints
OSHA

The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration announced Thursday that it cited a Texas construction company after a worker died in a crane collapse in March.

OSHA cited Farmersville-based S&D Erectors Inc. for four willful violations and proposed $262,977 in penalties in connection with the death of the mobile crane operator at a work site in Aubrey, Texas.

S&D exposed its workers to dangers by overloading the crane, failed to have an accident prevention program in place, failed to regularly inspect the work site and failed to meet federal safety standards for crane inspections, OSHA stated.

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