Grain handling is a high-hazard activity, where workers face serious injury and death. Youth should not be in grain bins or silos or in/around flat storage
The UMASH Farm Safety Check is a quick monthly review to identify and fix potential hazards before they cause harm to your family and employees – and your bottom line. Each month, Farm Safety Check will focus on a different topic, offering checklists and tips to help identify hazards, along with resources to remedy any problems.
UMASH Farm Safety Check topics will include: animal handling, family safety, chemical storage, tractor safety, emergency preparedness, crop and feed storage, fire prevention, electrical safety, working from heights, augers and elevators, chemical application and more.
Use Farm Safety Check to reinforce safety practices throughout the year.
