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”.

Chemical manufacturer cited after worker fatally burned


The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration said Friday that it cited a Georgia chemical manufacturer following the June death of an employee who had only been on the job for two months.

OSHA cited Cartersville-based Chemical Products Corp. for five serious violations following the accident in which the worker suffered fatal chemical and thermal burns from hot sludge after opening an air intake valve. Another employee suffered second-degree burns in the incident.

Another Chemical Products worker suffered chemical burns 25 days later, according to the agency.

OSHA said the company failed to employ various safety precautions designed to protect workers from such hazards and proposed $55,403 in penalties.

Chemical Products has 15 business days to contest the citation and proposed penalties.
