Electrical Safety

Electrical Safety effects almost every task involved in grain handling and storage. Some areas to consider for training on this topic include:

  • Recognizing Electrical Hazards – this can be anything from burned outlets, frayed extension cords, overhead electrical wires, correctly labeling electrical boxes/breakers, wiring problems, to using correct tools
  • Arc Flash – what it is, how it happens, how to prevent it
  • LOTO – using LOTO whenever servicing or maintaining equipment

Featured Training

Daily Learning Session – April 5

10 AM – 12 PM (NOON) CST (2 PARTS)

Electrical Safety

FREE, live virtual training provided by the Grain Handling Safety Council.

Electrical safety “lights up” today’s learning session. In a 2 part session, Jason Moore, CESCP,  of Thompson walks the audience through identifying and mitigating common electrical hazards associated with grain handling and storage. Part 1 focuses on electrical shock and arc flash – identifying causes and methods to reduce the likelihood of an occurrence. During part 2 (11:00 AM), Jason explores common electrical mistakes and how to prevent them (NFPA 70). He discussed methods to reduce the likelihood/severity of injury such as preventative maintenance (NFPA 70B), establishing an Electrically Safe Work Condition (NFPA 70E), and use of proper tools. Brian Grimm, GHSC Board member will be our on-line expert during the event to address regulatory questions and there will be a post event ASK THE EXPERT session.

Session is sponsored by Thompson – thompsonknows.com

BONUS  SESSION – April 5

2 PM -3:30 PM CST 

Workplace Wellness

FREE, live virtual training provided by the Grain Handling Safety Council.

The pandemic has not only changed the way we do business, but also emphasized the need to understand the different types of infectious agents, fungi, and zoonotic diseases agricultural workers are exposed to daily. Beyond COVID-19, Ellen Duysen, MPH, COHC of CS-CASH shares best strategies to prevent and reduce transmission of germs between our different life environments – work, home, and community. Whether you work on a farm, grain elevator, feedlot or other type of agricultural setting, learn ways to protect the workplace, food supply chain, and most importantly, yourself and your family from health hazards.

Session is sponsored by the Central States Center for Agricultural Safety & Health – A NIOSH Ag Center. 

 

Articulate 360 Training Module

On-Demand

Lockout/Tagout

Self-guided, on-line tutorial.

The NGFA-produced “Training Modules” through Articulate 360 are 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. Check here often to find new, relevant and interactive content.

The purpose of this curriculum is to provide viewers, including front-line workers, supervisors, and managers iwth an increased knowledge of different situations and hazards frequently associated with lockout/tagout and to further the discussion around hazard identification and mitigation.
