Welcome to Stand Up 4 Grain Safety Week

Because everyone deserves to go home from work each day, we have come together as an industry to take a stand for safety.

The National Stand Up for Grain Safety Week sponsored by the Alliance, a collaboration of agricultural industry groups, provides a collective industry focus on, and commitment to safety.

We all have a piece in this!

Every year dozens of employees are injured or die from preventable hazards while working in grain storage and handling. Safety doesn’t need to be big to be effective, but it does need everyone to make it happen.

This year commit to safety by making small changes in the workplace or how tasks are performed to make a positive safety impact.
