Manure Pit Hazards

Farm Safety & Health Digest Vol. 3, No. 4, p. 3

Slide 6

At this point you might want to use the manure pit demo model to show how gases accumulate in the manure pit.

See: Directions for Manure Pit.

The main point here is that gases accumulate and displace the oxygen (which is necessary for human breathing).

Be sure to emphasize that this is a model, real gases are invisible and cannot be seen.
