Stand Up for Grain Bin Safety

Every year hundreds of employees are injured or die from preventable hazards while working in grain storage and handling. Due to rising numbers of grain bin related injuried and fatalities OSHA created an Alliance to bring more awareness and grow a stronger safety culture.

This week we will be looking at the different hazards grain bins bring as well as what we can do as an industry to help mitigate these hazards. Each day also has a free webinar on a focused topic - be sure to check these out and get registered below.
