"Valuing your worker’s safety and well-being are ideas that most can agree on being crucial for company success within dangerous industries such as Grain Handling. Part of my job is updating our Twitter Feed and keeping an eye out for industry news via shared stories and retweets by some of the most credible sources in the material handling industries. 

"Recently, I have been seeing numerous stories about grain entrapment accidents and can’t help but wonder, why does this keep occurring when preventive measures are available? 

"Safety and Health Topics on OSHA’s website can prove to be rather helpful and a great reference to industry procedures, so I started there in my quest to compile this list."

  1. Provide Proper Dust Collection Equipment Within Your Facilities 
  2. Properly Choose Location of Your Dust Collection Equipment
  3. Utilize Proper Vibratory Equipment for Grain Storage Bins
  4. Power Down Any Excess Equipment Pieces Associated with Bin 
  5. Provide All Employees with a Safety Harness
  6. Implement Preventive Maintenance Programs
