Perdue Proclaims February 16-22 Grain Bin Safety Week

Week will promote education and awareness of hazards and safe work practices

U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue issued a proclamation naming February 16-22 as Grain Bin Safety Week, reports KELO.com.

The purpose of Grain Bin Safety Week is to promote education and awareness of hazards and safe work practices in an effort to reduce the number of accidents associated with grain handling and storage.

In 2018, there were 30 documented grain entrapment cases with half of those entrapped resulting in a fatality.

“We hope grain operators, farmers, and community leaders will join us in expanding knowledge of safe practices not just during National Grain Bin Safety Week, but year-round,” Secretary Sonny Perdue told KELO.com.
