Feed and Grain Mill Safety: Housekeeping, Hot Work and Electrical Hazards Mobile App

Feed and grain mill safety can present several challenges, including damage from grain dust explosions, fires and entrapment. Use the Housekeeping, Hot Work and Electrical Hazards mobile app to ensure that grain companies are prepared for grain handling operations.

Increasing feed and grain mill safety at grain companies through preventive controls and inspections is critical to the reduction of fires and explosions in grain and feed mill facilities. Practicing routine housekeeping around the facility and with feed industry equipment to reduce grain dust and keep equipment working safely is the key to increasing workplace safety in the grain and feed industry.
