HEALTH CARE TIPS : SAFETY AND FIRST AID
Follow these easy steps:
� Save your back
Choose tools with handles long enough to allow you
to work without bending over. Don't lift oversized packages of fertilizer or
sod. Use a wheelbarrow or just buy smaller packages.
� Wear sunscreen
Avoid sunburn by using sunscreen with a minimum sun
protection factor (SPF) of 15.
� Skip the scents
scented hair spray or lotion attracts stinging insects.
� Wear light-colored,
Bright colors attract insects, too. And loose
clothes allow insects access to your skin.
� Choose sensible shoes
Wear closed-toe, sturdy, nonskid shoes to prevent
injuries from lawn mowers.
� Turn off the lawn
Then unclog, adjust or fix the equipment. Before
refueling, allow the motor to cool for several minutes. Don't smoke.
� Handle chemicals
Before spraying bug or weed killers, wait for calm
weather. Wind can blow chemicals back toward you and irritate your skin. Wear
protective goggles, gloves, full- length pants and a long-sleeved shirt.
