Remember these tips and you will have a safe, happy and accident free Spring.
It’s finally getting nice, and time to get outside to clean up and start the lawn work. Here are a few reminders to help keep you safe.
Wear appropriate protective clothing:
Don’t wear anything loose that could get caught in equipment
Wear long pants
Choose appropriate footwear, usually boots or heavy shoes
Wear headphones or earplugs to protect your hearing
Wear goggles or safety glasses to protect against flying debris
Wear gloves as needed
When getting equipment out in the spring, review the instructions and safety warnings to refresh yourself on
proper usage. Be sure your extension cords are in good condition and appropriate for outdoor use.
When mowing, pick up the yard first. Stones and other items can become dangerous projectiles. But if you would rather enjoy Spring by relaxing, contact Home Services Link . We will arrange lawn service for the entire season
Keep your children safe. Don’t leave equipment or tools in the yard. Keep children (and pets) away from power equipment and lawn mowers (don’t let them ride with you on a lawn tractor either).
Work from the ground when possible. Use extension rods to clean gutters and a pressure sprayer for cleaning siding and windows. When using a ladder, have someone around to hold the ladder and help with supplies and equipment. We have service providers for all your Spring clean-up needs.
