Work Safely Around Grain

Grain Bin HazardsUsing appropriate safety practices when working around grain is vital. 

"Make sure everyone, including family and employees, working around stored grain understands the hazards and proper safety procedures," North Dakota State University Extension Service agricultural engineer Ken Hellevang says.

 "Too many people ignore safety practices and suffer severe injury or death while working around grain," he adds. "They get trapped in grain, tangled in auger flighting, or develop respiratory problems from exposure to grain dust and mold particles."
