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”.

Florida contractor cited after worker’s fatal fall


The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration said Friday that it cited a Florida contractor following the fatal fall of a worker through a roof in March.

OSHA cited Hialeah-based Sealed Tight Roofing Inc. for one willful violation and two serious violations and proposed $84,379 in fines.

The worker was killed in a 40-foot fall while working on a commercial property in Miami Gardens.

OSHA said Sealed Tight Roofing failed to provide employees with adequate fall protection or personal fall arrest systems and also failed to install covers or guardrails around holes in the roof.

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