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”.

Georgia company cited after worksite fatality


The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration said Wednesday that it cited a Georgia concrete pipe manufacturer after a 19-year-old worker was killed at a Florida worksite in March.

OSHA cited Newnan, Georgia-based Foley Products Co. LLC for one willful and six serious violations for exposing workers to crushed-by hazards by allowing them to enter cement mixers without following energy control procedures.

The agency proposed $245,546 in penalties.

The fatality occurred at a worksite in Cantonment, Florida, when the worker, who was inside a mixer chipping away at hardened concrete, became trapped when the machine started.

Foley Products has 15 business days to contest the citations and proposed penalties.
