This information from the Shriners could make for some great marketing material. It would be informative and possible make people think twice before mowing their own lawn. Maybe they would decide to leave it to a professional.

Lawnmower Safety Starts with Help From Shriners Hospitals - To prevent lawnmower injuries, follow these safety tips from Shriners Hospitals for Children and the CPSC:

** Do not allow passengers on a riding mower.

** Keep children out of the yard and indoors while mowing the lawn.

** Do not allow children under 14 to operate a lawnmower.

** Always prepare your lawn for mowing. Check your lawn for items such as sticks, rocks, toys, etc. Make sure nothing is hidden in the grass.

** Handle fuel with care. Wipe up spills. Never fill the tank on a mower that is hot. Never smoke or use any kind of flame around gasoline.

** Wear appropriate clothing and shoes, including long pants, long-sleeved shirts, eye protection, heavy gloves, and sturdy, close-toed shoes with slip-resistant rubber soles.

** Check guards and shields. Read the owner's manual and know how to operate the equipment. Don't remove or disable guards or other safety devices.

** Use a mower with an automatic blade cut-off. Stay behind the handle until the blade stops.

** Never reach under a mower while it is still operating. If you need to remove debris or check the blade, disconnect the wire from the spark plug.

** Don't cut grass when it's wet.

** On slopes, mow up and down rather than across the slope.
