The Nebraska Grain and Feed Association (NGF) in cooperation with Ag Valley Cooperative, Compliance Advisory Services (CAS) and the Nebraska State Fire Marshal’s Office (SFM) are planning an Engulfment and Confined Space Rescue Training Session on June 10, 2010.  This prevention and rescue workshop will be held at the Ag Valley North Platte location

NGF members can attend the training session for $90, while the nonmember rate is $120.  However, if members bring a volunteer firemen you can reduced each registration fee by $20, to $70.  The fees include the cost associated with the workshops, including all handouts or printed materials including coffee, sodas and other snacks.  Lunch will be provided.

While grain handling facilities fall under a slightly different OSHA regulation (29 CFR 1910.272) than ethanol plants (29 CFR 1910.146), the rope rescue and the confined space rescue training would be applicable and equally beneficial to employees of all grain handling or processing facilities.  The emphasis of the training program is on engulfment and confined space rescue.   However, accident prevention is imperative, and the workshop will address a number of areas intended to avoid a catastrophic situation.  Grain engulfment and confined space rescue involves working with ropes and harnesses for victim retrieval, and understanding these systems is critical. 

During the 4 hour session, NGF managers and employees will receive a comprehensive mix of classroom and hands-on demonstration and training to assist in the prevention of avoidable accidents.  NGF certificates will be issued to the participants who attend the training sessions.  Please print out the following registration for details and a tentative agenda.  Registration Form IMPORTANT!  If there is enough interest, NGF will consider adding an afternoon session. 

If you or your employees are interested in attending the rope and confined space rescue training, please call Pat or Sara at the Association, 402-476-6174.
