2012 Grain Entrapment Prevention Symposium

Registrant list as of 3/16/2012

The grain industry must achieve a paradigm shift in order to eliminate the needless deaths from grain entrapments that we have experienced in recent years. We can only accomplish this with YOUR help and participation.

We need to make everyone aware of the Best Management Practices and encourage the use of new Design Parameters for grain handling facilities in the future.

You are invited to be part of this industry initiative to design and use safer, more efficient grain storage facilities.

If you work in the grain industry, steel bin manufacturing, academia, insurance underwriting, or the emergency response industry your participation is invited.

Register today, and prepare to make history by helping us reverse the escalating trend seen in grain entrapments around grain handling facilities.
