Health Tips for May 5

Health Tip: Use a Lawnmower Safely
Proper care, maintenance and use of your lawnmower can help reduce your risk of injury.
The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons offers these suggestions
Maintain your lawnmower and keep its blades sharp.
Service your mower before the first use each season.
Always turn off the motor when you inspect or repair your mower.
To remove debris from beneath the mower, use the handle of a broom or a stick. Never do this while the mower is running.
Keep all safety devices or shields on the mower.
Always turn off the mower before you walk away from it.
To prevent the possibility of burning your skin, never touch the engine cowling, which can become very hot.
Health Tip: Stay Safe During Spring Cleaning
Cleaning your home to a sparkling shine is a good way to kick off spring. But don't forget to think about safety.
The Home Safety Council offers these safe-cleaning suggestions
Keep stairs and floors clear of clutter, even while cleaning.
Don't carry loads that are too big to see over. If you're using stairs, leave one hand empty so you can hold onto a rail.
Don't allow young children to play near any bucket, especially a large one. It may pose a drowning danger.
Wear protective equipment, such as a mask and gloves, when working with harsh chemicals. Never mix cleaning products together.
Use caution when handling products marked as dangerous or poisonous. Always lock these away safely when not in use.
Store toys, cords or any other tripping hazards out of the way.
Use a stepladder or ladder to reach high places. Follow safety instructions when on a ladder to prevent falls.
Never use gasoline as a cleaning product, and never store it inside the home. A simple spark can ignite even gasoline vapors.
