andscaping is typically
viewed as a chore by home-
owners, many of who enjoy
doing some work on their lawns
and gardens. But only few home-
owners may recognize the poten-
tial dangers of lawn maintenance.
The Consumer Product Safety
Commission reports that more
than 230,000 people per year are
treated for various injuries result-
ing from lawn and garden tools.
Common injuries include loss of
ngers, lacerations, broken and
dislocatedbones, eye injuries, and
burns. Many of these injuries are
entirely preventable if homeown-
ers prioritize safety when tending
to their lawns and gardens.
Understand the equipment
Homeowners should not as-
sume they know how to use all of
the tools necessary to maintain
lush lawns and bountiful gardens.
Familiarize yourself with the
proper operation of manual and
motorized equipment by reading
the owner's manual thoroughly,
making special note of recom-
mended safety guidelines.
Take some time to locate the
power buttons and other parts by
comparing them to illustrations
in the guide. Once you feel com-
fortable handling the equipment,
then you can begin to use it.
Wear appropriate protective
Failure to wear protective
gear can lead to injury. Personal
protective equipment includes
gloves, eye protection, ear protec-
tion, boots, and a hard hat if nec-
essary. When working during vis-
ibility conditions or at night, wear
a reective vest.
Other protective items include
a hat to shade your eyes from the
sun's rays. Sunscreen will protect
the skin fromUVA and UVB radi-
ation. Long pants and sleeves can
guard against ying debris.
Watch your surroundings
Thousands of injuries occur to
children and pets who get hurt
around mowers. It's best if chil-
dren and pets remain indoors
when homeowners are mowing
or using other power equipment
that may kick up debris. Children
under the age of 12 may not have
the strength or ability to oper-
ate lawn tools. Also, never make
a game of riding a child on a rid-
ing mower. Nobody under the age
of 16 should operate riding lawn
Get approval before digging
It's difficult to knowwhat is be-
neath the ground without having
a property surveyed and marked.
Digging without approval can
result in damage to gas lines or
water/sewer pipes. Always check
with the utility company before
digging trenches or holes.
Unplug or turn off all equipment
When not in use, keep lawn
equipment off. Do not try to re-
pair or x a snag or obstruction
in equipment while it is on. Don't
modify the equipment in any
way, such as removing protective
Exercise caution with
Follow manufacturers' safety
instructions when using pesti-
cides or fertilizers. Avoid applica-
tion on windy days or right before
a rainstorm, as this can spread the
product and damage the ecosys-
tem. Keep people and pets away
from treated areas.
Maintaining the yard is both
a necessity and a hobby. Home-
owners who prioritize safety can
greatly reduce their risk of injury.
