Each year the Agricultural Safety and Health team highlight a safety topic important to the everyday lives of farm families. This year learn about the hazards of flowing grain, lifelines and anchor points, confined space grain storages and the best practices to avoid and respond to entrapment risks during the Best Practices for Safe Grain Handling. The grain bin rescue demonstrations 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. In addition, the Farm Safety Demonstration Area (SD) will host Penn State faculty demonstrating safe use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV).
