Fall Cleanup Safety

Woman Mulching Autumn LeavesFall is here. Here are some reminders during yard cleanup…

Wear protective gear (gloves, goggles, ear protection (if necessary), and appropriate clothing.

Follow safety procedures while using tools (power / non-power); make sure guards are in place on all power tools.

Check you local laws about burning leaves (We don’t recommend burning them, we recommend playing in them – except when they’re in the street!)

Be cautious of hidden objects in leaf piles (garden tools, animals, children, etc.)

Remember ladder safety. Maintain 3 points of contact. Watch for overhead lines that can electrocute you.

Have a 360 degree view in all areas when using equipment to ensure others are safe.

At home, work or play, it’s Safety every day!  Safety Always!
