This week is national grain bin safety week: a timely topic for us in Louisiana. Just three months ago, 37 year old Christopher Albert of Madison Parish died after getting stuck in a grain bin. In 2015, 14 people died after getting trapped in grain bins, according to Purdue University. That’s why the Louisiana Farm Bureau is hosting a series of grain bin safety and rescue training workshops to prevent the next death.
