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

Safety programs help employers and employees to maintain an efficient and productive industry. An effective safety program will improve job performance and reduce the chances of personal injury and property damage. Feed and grain mills can present several hazards, including explosions, fires and entrapment. Use the Housekeeping, Hot Work and Electrical Hazards mobile app to ensure your facility is prepared for housekeeping, hot work and electrical hazards. A crucial key to the reduction of fires and explosions in grain and feed mill facilities is housekeeping. Housekeeping, however, relates to hazards in addition to fires and explosions. Research has shown that facilities that are well maintained experience fewer fires, explosions and other accidents, and are more profitable as well.
