Illinois Farm Bureau President Stresses Importance of Grain Safety

Suffocation is a leading cause of death in grain storage bins

In a letter to Illinois Farm Bureau members, Richard Guebert, the organization’s president, recounts the tragic death of his cousin, who died while cleaning out a grain bin. Guebert explains that suffocation is a leading cause of death in grain storage bins, and reminds members to take the proper steps to ensure safety when entering grain bins.

OSHA has developed a number of educational resources to provide workers, employers, and safety and health professionals with useful, up-to-date safety and health information on grain handling facilities. To learn more about hazards and safety measures, visit OSHA's grain handling Web page.
