There are some important rules that are recommended to be followed when dealing with grain bins, and making sure safety comes first.
If there happens to be crusted grain inside your bin, first try to use a long pole to retrieve it. Make sure you avoid being near any electric lines when doing this.
Stay near the outer wall of the bin and keep walking if the grain should start to flow. Get to the bin ladder or safety rope as quickly as possible.
It's always a smart idea to have other people standing near the outside of the grain bin incase of an emergency. If they are familiar with rescue strategies, that's even better.
There are some pretty harsh numbers when it's come to grain bin accidents and not remaining safe. In the past 50 years, more than 900 cases of grain engulfment have been reported with a fatality rate of 62 percent. Harvest is in full swing right now in September, and it`s important that you value your safety while working hard.
