Safety First... McLanahan Helps Customers Test For Hazardous Air Quality

McLanahan Corporation's Agricultural Division is assisting customers with farm safety. Earlier this year, we purchased equipment for air quality around manure processing systems.

On some farm visits McLanahan employees must enter areas contaminated with manure in order to perform evaluations or repairs. Our company was worried about employees and customers entering areas that may be hazardous to their health.

A meter was obtained for the employees to check for hazardous gases around manure processing systems. A representative of Mine Safety Appliance trained employees on the proper use of the meter. The meter is designed to detect oxygen levels, hydrogen sulfide, flammability of the air, and carbon monoxide present in the air.

In the field, McLanahan employees are able to explain the meter and the importance of checking an environment prior to entering. Customers are shown the various readings and what gasses are present.

McLanahan Ag Division is pleased to do its part to help make dairy farms a safer place to work.
