Safety Violations Involving Grain Bin Accidents on Farms

When a person is seriously injured or killed in a grain bin fall or accident, OSHA Investigates.

Grain silos, or bins, are commonly found on farms throughout the country. In the Midwest, in states like Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota and Indiana, these large structures dot the landscape.

These are large cylinders that are used for grain storage and to hold other crops. These are found on both commercial farms and family farms.
