Safety ArticlesGrain Bin Safety: Entrapment Prevention Kits
At SCAFCO, employee safety is the number one priority in the manufacturing of our products. We also strive to promote this outlook during the construction process, as SCAFCO highly values the well-being of our customers. We have included select company safety information here for your reference. By following these guidelines, you will ensure the safety of all personnel involved during construction of SCAFCO products and equipment.
SCAFCO equipment is designed with safety in mind. If the products are constructed and operated correctly there is a low risk of danger. If storage and handling equipment is constructed improperly, or if the safety guidelines for operation are not followed, then there could be disastrous consequences. The operators of grain storage facilities should review these and other safety tips with all employees on a regular basis, and make sure safety guidelines are posted for continual review and awareness.
One advantage of steel bins is that they can require minimal maintenance. In rural arid environments they can be relatively maintenance-free for many years and occasional coats of paint can extend the bin life indefinitely. To get the most out of your storage equipment, follow these simple guidelines to create and execute a maintenance program.
