Lawn Mower Injuries Often Caused by Distraction
Date:5/26/2013

backwards or mow in reverse unless absolutely necessary. If the lawn mower is used in reverse, carefully check that no children are in its path.
  • Be sure to turn the mower off and wait for the blades to stop moving before removing the grass catcher, unclogging the discharge chute, crossing paths or roads, or making repairs.
  • Do not use your hands or feet to remove debris from lawn mowers. Opt for a stick or broom handle instead.
  • Do not take children for rides on lawn mowers.
  • Make sure children are not in the yard while a lawn mower is being used.
  • Drive up and down slopes, not across to prevent a lawn mower from rolling over.
  • Properly maintain or service lawn mowers so they are in good working order.
  • "Every year at this time, children can be seen operating or playing around lawn mowers in unsafe ways. In thousands of yards, injuries will occur, and a beautiful summer day will become a painful occasion," Thomas McInerny, president of the American Academy of Pediatrics, said in the release. "We want parents and kids to be more aware of precautions to take so that injuries can be prevented."

    Last year in the United States, more than 234,000 people were admitted to the hospital or treated in a clinic or emergency department for lawn mower-related injuries, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
