FarmSafe Podcast S1E13: Grain Bin Safety

 

Published February 23, 2022. Hosted by Kate Crawford.

Episode Summary

In this episode, we talk about grain engulfment and entrapment. The speed and force of flowing or shifting grain can have deadly consequences for workers who enter grain bins or walk on outdoor grain piles. We will be hearing stories from three guests today: a woman whose brother was rescued from a grain bin, an emergency responder who has been called for grain bin rescues, and Dr. Salah Issa, a researcher at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, who has been studying grain bin engulfment and will provide recommendations for keeping safe when working with grain.
