STFs, Crush, Struck-By Hazards

Working in and around grain structures poses numerous hazards for slip/trip/fall injuries, crush injuries, or struck-by injuries. These are especially prevalent during loading and unloading tasks whether on the farm, at the commercial elevator dump pit or when working around railcars. Work with employees to recognize the hazards, prevent them, and take appropriate personal actions when these hazards are encountered.
