Dangers Of Improper Grain Handling
Newer technology creates more volume, faster handling and the need for only one worker. Unfortunately, these advances also subject workers to risk for accidents and injuries such as:
- Suffocation — may be caused by drowning in grain in the bin, walking on crusted grain that breaks, removing spoiled grain from below and becoming submerged, and carbon dioxide buildup from fermented grain
- Grain bin accidents and injuries — may include explosions, falling off the roof of the grain bin, electric shock and electrocution, and mold and spoiled grain dust in the air causing respiratory disease
- Dangerous equipment — such as grain auger accidents, combine accidents and fires in grain dryers
