In this module the first section on basic concepts of transport equipment and inspection explains commonly encountered transport vehicles and general areas where grain may reside. Next is a description of useful tools. Then inspection and cleaning of individual transport vehicle styles are discussed in more detail beginning with the wagon. Subsequent vehicles discussed note significant new areas, but also build on cleaning concepts for vehicles described earlier. Types of safety hazards are introduced below, will be mentioned as they are presented within different vehicle types, and then summarized in a safety section at the end of the module.
