Mowing and landscaping are synonymous with the summer season. There’s nothing like spending a weekend afternoon trimming back hedges, edging the front lawn or eradicating weeds from your garden. It feels good to sweat under the hot sun, and the smell of gasoline and grass clippings is intoxicating.
Even so, mowing and landscaping present serious health hazards. A 2018 report by researchers at Johns Hopkins University found that each year, more than 6,000 Americans visit the emergency room due to a mowing-related injury.
The risk of injury is even greater for infants and children. Every year, about 800 American kids are run over by riding mowers or small tractors and many of these injuries result in extensive surgery or amputation.
This data isn’t to scare you, but to inform you. Even if you’ve worked with lawn and landscaping equipment your entire life, there’s always the risk of an accident or injury.
