you begin mowing. Clear the area of large sticks or other
- Wear clothing that offers some
protections, like sturdy shoes with non-slip soles to
provide good traction. Wear eye protection, like glasses,
sunglasses, or goggles, while mowing.
- Read the operating guide for your
mower. Make sure you understand all of its safety features
prior to use. Make sure your new power mower has a "deadman"
control that stops the mower if you let go of the handle. Do
not disable this or other safety features of your mower.
- Do not cut the lawn when it's raining,
lightning, or when the grass is slippery.
- Adolescents should be at least 12
years of age before they operate lawn-mowing equipment.
Discuss lawn mower safety with all of your children.
- Never allow young children to ride
alone on a riding mower.
- Caution adolescents who are operating
lawn-mowing equipment to avoid carelessly placing hands near
power blades. Do not clean the grass exit with your hands.
- Do not push a lawn mower onto the
pavement. The lawn keeps objects from being hurled at a high
speed. On the pavement, there is no such protection.
- Make sure your mower is in good
working condition at all times.
