Since 1964, Purdue University has recorded more than 800 cases of flowing grain entrapments. Many, if not most “non-fatal” incidents go unreported. The U.S. averages 15-20 documented entrapments per year based on 40 years of data. An estimated 55% of documented grain entrapments result in death. Based on historical data, roughly 70% of the documented entrapments occur on farms.
The goal of this document is provide insight into preventing grain entrapments and understanding how three types of entrapments occur. Severe injuries and deaths can be avoided with a constant commitment to basic safety measures and situational awareness. Every flowing grain entrapment is a preventable incident.
