Each year the Agricultural Safety and Health team highlight a safety topic important to the everyday lives of farm families. In the 2021 year, you may learn about the hazards of flowing grain and confined space grain storages, and the best practices to avoid and respond to entrapment risks. There will be three demonstrations at 10 a.m., 12 p.m., and 2 p.m., on Tuesday and Thursday which will illustrate how grain flows in storage structures, hazards, anchor points, and rescue procedures. On Wednesday, grain bin rescue demonstration will be held to highlight types of rescue devices and training available to first responders for proper management of on-farm incidents involving grain storage. This will take place at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. In addition, the Farm Safety Demonstration Area (SD) will host Penn State faculty demonstrating safe use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV). Visit the AgrAbility for Pennsylvanian's exhibit area for new adaptive resources and participate in health screenings in the Rural Health and Safety Tent Area on Demo Alley and W. 6th St.
