Caught in the Grain!

Grain bin 22

People can become caught or trapped in grain in three different ways: the collapse of bridged grain, collapse of a vertical wall of grain and flowing grain. Moving or flowing grain is involved in all three. People who work with grain – loading it, unloading it and moving it from bin to bin – need to know about the hazards of flowing grain and how to prevent a grain entrapment situation.
