Raking and Disposing of Those Leaves

Here are some reminders during yard cleanup.

  • Protective gear. Wear gloves, goggles, ear protection and appropriate clothing. Make sure shoes or boots have good traction.
  • Follow safety procedures. When using tools (power/non-power) make sure guards are in place on all power tools
  • Disposal. Check your local laws about burning leaves.
  • Be cautious. Watch for hidden objects in leaf piles (garden tools, animals, children, etc.).
  • Practice ladder safety. Maintain 3 points of contact. Watch for overhead lines that can electrocute you.
  • Stay hydrated. You can work up a sweat. Make sure you drink plenty of water.

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