Transcript of Grain Handling Safety Coalition PSA

Ag Safety Awareness Week is March 4-10--a fitting time to remind you to take extra precautions when working in grain bins. It takes only a matter of seconds to become submerged in flowing grain. Make it a habit to follow three simple yet life-saving rules when entering a grain bin: turn off all augers, wear a body harness and secured safety rope, have a spotter outside the bin. Simple, yes. Scary, you bet! In the time it took to deliver this message you could lose your life in a grain handling accident. This message is brought to you by the Grain Handling Safety Coalition.
