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”.

Wisconsin roofing company cited for fall hazards


The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration said Monday that it cited a Wisconsin roofing contractor for repeat and safety violations after employees were exposed to fall hazards in May and June.

OSHA said it cited Suamico-based Overhead Solutions LLC for four repeat violations and one serious violation of federal fall protection standards and proposed $180,469 in penalties. The agency had cited the company for similar violations in 2022.

Inspectors observed roofers working 30 feet above ground without fall protection at a Menasha apartment complex in May. Less than two weeks later, inspectors discovered a similar lack of fall protection at a work site in Appleton.

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