Podcast: Steve Simmons, Nationwide Agribusiness, on the Observance of Grain Bin Safety Week Feb. 23 to Mar 1
Date Posted: January 23, 2014
Mark your calendar! February 23 to March 1 is Grain Bin Safety Week, designed to call attention to the dangers of entering grain bins and to be aware of precautions to take should that be necessary. The initiative was born within Nationwide Agribusiness, a national risk management company for agriculture, headquartered at Des Moines, IA.
Steve Simmons (515-508-3462), associate vice president of risk management services, says the promotional effort will include farm organizations, 4-H and FFA, grain elevators, and everyone involved in agriculture. Support for the promotion and ideas for activity are provided by the website: www.GrainBinSafetyWeek.com.
Simmons outlines the purposes of the observance and how the concept was developed.
