During the past 50 years, more than 900 cases of grain engulfment of workers have been reported in the United States, with a 62-percent fatality rate.
Recommendations for preventing and responding to engulfments were untested, offering questionable efficacy.
The ultimate goal of this project is to provide educators a package that will help reduce the likelihood of engulfment in grain bins and increase the rate of successful rescues when engulfments occur.
