Feed and Grain Mill Safety: Health Hazards Mobile App
Safety programs help employers and employees to maintain an efficient and productive industry.
How does it work?
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 Feed and Grain Mill Safety: Health Hazards mobile app to ensure your facility is prepared for health hazards such as noise. Employees at grain and feed handling facilities are exposed to many sources of loud noise that could result in a loss of hearing. These sources of noise include conveyors, grain dryers, tractors, motors and augers. Excessive noise is one of the most commonly overlooked hazards in the grain and feed mill industries. It can cause permanent hearing loss. It is important to measure the descriptors of noise—intensity, frequency and duration.
