OSHA Outreach Training

Grain Handling Facilities with Simulated "Non-Entry" and "Entry" Rescue Operation (8 Hours)

29 CFR 1910.272 - Grain Handling Facilities; ANSI Z117.1 - Safety Requirements for Confined Spaces; 1910.147 - The Control of Hazardous Energy; 1910.252 Welding, Cutting, and Brazing; OSHA CPL 03-00-008, Subject: Combustible Dust National Emphasis Program; and NFPA 61 Standard for the Prevention of Fires and Dust Explosions in Agricultural and Food Processing Facilities

OSHA states that employers of grain handling facilities must provide training to employees at least annually and when changes in job assignment will expose them to new hazards. Current employees, and new employees prior to starting work, must be trained in at least the following:

  • General safety precautions associated with the facility, including recognition and preventive measures for the hazards related to dust accumulations and common ignition sources such as smoking; and,
  • Specific procedures and safety practices applicable to their job tasks, including but not limited to, cleaning procedures for grinding equipment, clearing procedures for choked legs, housekeeping, hot work, preventive maintenance and lockout/ tag-out procedures;
  • Employees assigned special tasks, such as bin entry and handling of flammable or toxic substances, must be provided training to perform these tasks safely. Training for an employee who enters grain storage structures includes training about engulfment and mechanical hazards and how to avoid them.

The grain handling industry is a high hazard industry where workers can be exposed to numerous serious and life threatening hazards. These hazards include: fires and explosions from grain dust accumulation, suffocation from engulfment and entrapment in grain bins, falls from heights and crushing injuries and amputations from grain handling equipment. Grain handling facilities are facilities that may receive, handle, store, process and ship bulk raw agricultural commodities such as (but not limited to) corn, wheat, oats, barley, sunflower seeds, and soybeans. Grain handling facilities include grain elevators, feed mills, flour mills, rice mills, dust pelletizing plants, dry corn mills, facilities with soybean flaking operations, and facilities with dry grinding operations of soycake.

Hands-On Activities include; Students will demonstrate their ability to use a Fall Arrest and Restraint Systems, Overhead Rescue and Retrieval Systems and Grain Rescue Tubes & Auger.
