OSHA formed an alliance with the National Grain and Feed Association (NGFA) with the goal of protecting the safety and health of workers in the grain handling industry. The two-year alliance will focus on preventing exposure to hazards associated with grain bin entry, machine guarding, respiratory protection, falls, heat exposure, combustible dust, struck-by equipment, and lockout/tagout.

Participants also plan to support and promote events such as the Grain Industry Stand-Up, which focuses on engulfment prevention.
