A Survey for Ohio Farmers with On-Farm Grain Storage Facilities

Farmers in 60 of Ohio’s 88 counties have responded to the On-Farm Grain Storage Safety Survey. The counties highlighted in red have farmer participants! AND, there are 2 weeks remaining to advertise the link for more farmers (especially those in the white highlighted counties) to participate!  The survey link is on this webpage: https://go.osu.edu/BinSurvey

The survey does not collect personal information that could be traced back to the producer, making the responses anonymous. All farmers who own, manage, or use on-farm grain bin structures are eligible to complete the survey.

The information will be used to develop future training programs specific for Ohio grain facilities. The research project is being conducted by a graduate student in the OSU Ag Safety and Health program, under the direction of Dee Jepsen. The project was funded by the Bureau of Workers Compensation (BWC). The aim of this research will help identify safety and health practices used on Ohio farms to help solve (or at least reduce) the hazards when working around grain storage facilities.
