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”.

Grain silo operator cited after worker suffocates


The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration said Friday it cited a Georgia grain silo operator after a worker’s suffocation.

OSHA cited Colquitt-based Cedar Head LLC for nine serious violations after an employee working in a grain silo became engulfed and suffocated in April. The agency proposed $41,303 in penalties.

OSHA said the silo operator failed to train workers on how to safely enter a grain bin and failed to make sure body harnesses and lifelines were adequate to protect against engulfment hazards.

Cedar Head has 15 business days to contest the citations and proposed penalties.
