NGFA Highlights First Harvest Safety Week Oct. 14-18

Association offers several resources for safety precautions during a busy harvest

The National Grain and Feed Association (NGFA) is committed to promoting safety and health in the workplace, and shares the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA’s) commitment to protecting employees.

With that in mind, NGFA is highlighting safety during its first-ever Harvest Safety Week October 14-18. 

NGFA has produced a wide-ranging library of resources available at ngfa.org/safety to help grain handlers and producers prepare for harvest.

Examples include:

NGFA Safety Tips Sheet: Preparing Bins for Harvest

The NGFA's "Safety Tips" series is published periodically as part of the Association's continued commitment to safety in the workplace. These documents are designed to provide more information on certain types of hazards and suggested ways to protect employees through safety best practices.

Video: Bin Entry Safety

NGFA Manager of Safety, Education, and Training Jim Seibert reviews the basic safety precautions and equipment needed to enter a grain bin. This short video, funded by the National Grain and Feed Foundation, breaks down each step of the process to ensure managers and employees don’t miss a step and stay safe every day.

Interactive training: Slips Trips and Falls

NGFA-produced, interactive videos will be published periodically as part of the Association’s continued commitment to safety in the workplace. These modules are funded by the National Grain and Feed Foundation and are designed to provide information on certain types of hazards and best safety practices within the grain handling and feed industry.
