In grain bins and other grain storage facilities, it is literally just “Seconds to Tragedy”. Join us as we introduce a new video, based on a true story, about a double fatality in grain. The video explores missing safety strategies that could have prevented this incident. We will explain how the video, along with a discussion sheet can be used as a training tool, both for high school agricultural teachers and for community training. These video materials compliment the Stand TALL curriculum, which can be used to expand on the concepts and safety strategies introduced in the video. This curriculum consists of three modules that educate and empower young workers with safety strategies for working in agricultural settings. The video and three modules can be used as stand-alone training components or combined for a comprehensive safety program.
This webinar will:
- Illustrate potential consequences when safety training and equipment are lacking.
- Discuss safety strategies and tools which can be used to address hazards.
- Provide resources which can be used to educate and empower young workers.
