Lawnmower Safety Tips

   As the day dawns bright and sunny, morning dew steams off of the warming grass and birds chirp happy messages to each other through the leafy treetops. Billowy white clouds bob slowly across the sparkling blue sky and all across the neighborhood folks look out their windows and think "What a perfect day to mow the lawn!"

   Unfortunately, once the lawnmowers are pulled out of the shed and put to use, many of those same people will suffer some kind of lawnmower-related injury. For the most part, many of the injuries each year could be reduced simply by taking the time to follow a few common-sense guidelines and by reading the safety instructions that come with each lawnmower when purchased new.

   As lawnmowers have become one of the most common lawncare items owned, more and more people approach their lawnmowing chores with a disregard for the potential of harm that can result from not treating lawnmowers with the proper respect. If used carelessly or thoughtlessly, lawnmowers, like most power equipment, can be very dangerous.

   More than 60,000 people each year are injured either while using a lawnmower or being in the near vicinity of a lawnmower being used. The majority of those injured are children under the age of 16 and suffer the injury due to unsafe practices rather than some sort of equipment malfunction.

   Bob's Power Center wants to help you avoid taking any unnecessary risks when it's time for you to dig out the mower and spruce up the lawn. We've gathered some general guidelines to help you practice safe mowing techniques and hope you take the time to share them with everyone in your family that uses the lawnmower.

   Thankfully, lawnmower manufacturers have improved safety features to help reduce injuries and many people already practice safe power equipment usage. Perhaps the first and best bit of advice that we can give you when it comes to any kind of power equipment or tools is - If something doesn't seem like it's safe, it's probably not safe! So don't do it!
