Grain Bin Safety Tips 

 

 As you empty your grain bins to prepare them for the harvest season remember Simon's Grain Bin Tips ... 

 

  1. Break up surface crusts from the outside of the grain bin by using a wooden or plastic pole or a weighted line. 
  2. Wear safety belts with properly fastened life lines that will keep you above the stored grain in case of a fall.  Never stand on top of stored grain. 
  3. Never enter grain bins alone, always have someone on the outside to get help, if help is needed. 
  4. Never load or unload grain bins while a worker is inside. 
  5. Turn on ventilating equipment. 

Remember Safety First !!!
