The health and safety of our agricultural workers has never been more important. The nation’s agricultural sector faced unprecedented challenges the past year, and the COVID-19 outbreak has brought even more uncertainty. One surety is grain production will continue. From food, fuel, and pharmaceuticals, grain touches all aspects of our life.

We urge you to take time and focus on safety during Stand Up 4 Grain Safety Week, April 13-17, 2020.
