Farm Grain Bin Safety Video Promotes Awareness


The National Corn Growers Association and the National Grain and Feed Foundation–the research and education arm of the National Grain and Feed Association–have unveiled a joint video project to promote awareness about grain bin safety on the farm. The two organizations teamed up to develop the video in response to an increase in U.S. fatalities and injuries associated with entry into grain bins.

Research shows that 92 percent of victims who become fully engulfed in flowing grain do not survive. Teens between 13 years and 17 years of age and farmers over the age of 55 are most at risk for entrapment in grain, according to the video.
