Lawn Mowing Safety

Tipping or losing control is a safety hazard for riding mower drivers. Taking steps to ensure safety during the heavy mowing season is essential. The National Safety Council has provided a five-minute safety talk that should be reviewed during the heavy mowing season. For example they recommend those on riding mowers should reduce speed before taking short turns; watch for dips, holes, bumps, and other items that may be obscured by grass; and to mow up and down - not across - when on slopes. Never leave a running mower unattended - or put your hands or feet near moving parts. For more tips, view the safety talk here

Heat Safety

Summer has only just officially begun and already temperatures in Virginia are reaching up to 100. For those working outdoors the heat can be potentially fatal. Risks from heat include heatstroke, heat exhaustion, and heat cramps. The best way to avoid these illnesses is to limit exposure on hot days; drink plenty of fluids and avoid alcohol; wear lose, lightweight clothing; drink fruit juice or sports drinks; wear sunscreen; and avoid spending time outdoors during the hottest part of the day - typically 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. For tips on treating heat illnesses, click here.
