    An Iowa father and son are dead after tangling with a deadly aspect of hog farming: their manure pit. Typically situated below a barn, the manure's noxious fumes don't escape easily, and the hydrogen sulfide— along with methane, ammonia, and carbon dioxide— can be a deadly mix.

    and not to be outdone:

    Two Wisconsin men have died after falling into a manure pit and being overcome by the gases.

    The Chippewa County Sheriff's Office says it happened around 5 p.m. Thursday in the Town of Woodmohr.

    According to the sheriff's office, Jeremy Seibel and Rodney Seibel of Bloomer were trying to retrieve a piece of equipment that fell into the manure pit. They were overcome by the gas and became unresponsive.

    Always a laff riot when hard working class people die in the line of duty.

    Probably were taxpayers too.

    It appears it's more common in col weather climates, at least the ones under building, one would think since the danger is so well known, they would use some type of breathing apparatus

    Sometime safety protocol is ignored if they think it'll get the job done faster.

    Regulations
    No Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standard exists for work in and around manure pits. OSHA is reviewing a proposed rule on confined-space procedures that would address safety in confined spaces such as manure pits [54 Fed. Reg. 24080 (1989)], but even this standard would not be enforced by OSHA on farms with 10 or fewer workers (calculated as an annual average). The absence of a standard and the lack of knowledge about the dangers of these pits increase the potential for deaths such as those described in this Alert.

    NIOSH has published criteria for a recommended standard for working in confined spaces [NIOSH 1979], an Alert on confined-space hazards [NIOSH 1986], and a guide for working in confined spaces [NIOSH 1987].

    but of course, no regulations are better

    The Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) decision to enforce regulations on certain small farms amounts to “blatant overreach” that unfairly targets small farmers, a pair of Senate Republicans argues.

    Sens. Mike Johanns (R-Neb.) and Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) are calling on the Labor Secretary Tom Perez to rescind OSHA guidance clarifying that the agency intends to enforce regulations on farms with less than 10 workers.

    For decades, Congress has inserted language in appropriations bills prohibiting OSHA – an arm of the Labor Department – from enforcing provisions of the 1976 Occupational Safety and Health Act at farming operations with 10 or fewer employees.

    I guess not everyone thinks to bring a breathing apparatus.
