NGFA and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) will host the annual safety outreach effort, Stand Up for Grain Safety Week, from April 13-17.
The event helps raise awareness about grain handling and storage hazards, provides education and training, and conveys best safety practices. It’s made possible through the NGFA-OSHA Alliance, which facilitates cooperation and communication between the regulatory agency and the grain, feed, processing and export industry. The Grain Elevator and Processing Society and Grain Handling Safety Coalition are partnering with NGFA and OSHA in the national outreach effort.
During Stand Up for Grain Safety Week, companies can participate by providing a focused activity and/or toolbox talk on any prevention measure. NGFA will issue daily training guides throughout the week and share updates on social media with #StandUp4GrainSafety.
