Have you seen Seconds to Tragedy? Make sure you do before harvest begins – it might save your life!
The Grain Handling and Safety Coalition presents “Seconds to Tragedy-Grain Safety for Young Workers”. In 2010, two young workers were engulfed and killed inside a grain bin in Mt. Carroll, IL. This tragedy inspired a group of individuals to form the Grain Handling and Safety Coalition. Working with the University of Illinois, their mission is to create a heightened awareness on the dangers of working in and around grain bins and prevent accidents, injuries and fatalities.
