Don’t lose a toe to your lawnmower!
Did you know that thousands of people are injured while operating a lawnmower each year? Most commonly, it’s people who operate lawnmowers without shoes! Tiny abrasions, to deep cuts, even amputations are all results from lawnmower injuries.
Preventing Lawnmower Injuries:
1. ALWAYS wear shoes, closed toe (no sandals)
2. Never cut wet grass
3. Keep children away from the lawnmower
4. Never pull a running lawnmower backwards
If you do injure yourself, seek treatment immediately. The blades of a lawnmower can be very dirty; infection is one of the highest risks!
