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”.

Steel fabrication company cited for numerous safety, health failures


The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration said Tuesday it cited a New Jersey steel fabrication company after a summer inspection uncovered numerous safety and health hazards.

OSHA cited Millville-based Kenric Steel LLC for four willful and seven serious violations and proposed $348,683 in penalties following a complaint-driven investigation in July 2023.

OSHA said a few months before the investigation Kenric Steel hired a safety consultant who identified numerous safety and health hazards at the fabrication shop, but the problems were never corrected.

The company failed to conduct annual inspections of overhead cranes, ensure proper use of welding screens, train new employees on chemical safety, install correct circuit breakers and medically evaluate new workers required to wear respirators, OSHA said.

Kenric Steel makes steel products including fall protection products.

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