Ah, summer – warmer temperatures, sunshine and the smell of fresh cut grass that comes along with that weekly chore. But rather than the delight of a newly manicured lawn, the task could end with an injury caused by using the mower in a dangerous and unsafe way. Letting children on a riding mower or leaving toys or other items on the lawn are just two examples that could lead to injuries. As you haul out your equipment for another season of lawn care, it’s important to know whether manufacturers have recalled any of the mower parts.
However, your safety is primarily your responsibility. You should be aware of the dangers involved with careless use. Thousands of people suffer injuries each year after not following safety rules when using a lawn mower.
