Posted March 24, 2023

OSHA recently cited a company for $531K in penalties when a grain handler suffocated after being engulfed in a corn silo. Stand Up 4 Grain Safety, scheduled for March 27-31, brings attention to such preventable hazards in grain handling and storage.

The week begins with a virtual kick-off event on March 27, with subsequent daily learning sessions presented by industry experts over Zoom:

  • March 28: Powered industrial trucks
  • March 29: Preventative maintenance
  • March 30: Heat stress and extreme weather events
  • March 31: Anhydrous ammonia and fumigation

Employers are encouraged to have their own events such as toolbox talks, equipment demonstrations, or stand-ups focused on a specific safety topic.
