OSHA Joins with Wisconsin Agri-business Association to Improve Field Safety

This new alliance will emphasize safety in some of the grain and feed industry’s danger areas.

OSHA had formed an alliance with Wisconsin Agri-business Association in an effort to address dangerous issues in the feed and grain industries. The areas are “engulfment, falls, auger entanglement, ‘struck-by,’ combustible dust and electrocution hazards,” outlined in OSHA’s Local Emphasis Program for Grain Handling Facilities.

With this newest addition to the OSHA Alliance program, the agency, along with the Wisconsin Agri-business Association, will see to develop training and guidance to workers and employers, improving safety standards in the field.

"This alliance is an opportunity for OSHA and the Wisconsin Agri-Business Association to work together to train employers and workers about the unique hazards of the grain and feed industry," said Kim Stille, OSHA's area director in Madison, Wis. in a statement on the OSHA website. "We will continue to improve the safety and health of workers on Wisconsin farms."

Resources supplied by the alliance will focus on effective machine guarding and energy lock-out programs, among other things.

This is just one of many alliances that OSHA has developed to increase industry-specific safety.
