In the united states, almost 10,000 children get injured due to lawnmower each year. Most lawnmower-related injured, however, can actually be prevented by doing such things.
1. In what age a child is allowed to handle a lawnmower?
Before trying to learn how to operate the mower, your kid should show good judgment, maturity, coordination as well as strength the job requires. American Academy of Pediatrics suggests that children should be:
- at least 12 years old to operate a push lawnmower safely
- at least 16 years old to operate a riding lawnmower safely
Before allowing your kid to operate the mower alone, teach them how to use a lawnmower appropriately and safely. Keep watching them while working with the mower until you're sure that they can do the job alone.
2. What to do before your kid mow the lawn?
Ask your children to be out of the yard. Make sure that your kids are in a safe distance or indoors that is away from the location you are mowing.
Make sure that all good conditions are met. Never mow your lawn while the weather is bad, like a thunderstorm, and mow while the grass is wet. Mowing your lawn with enough daylight is recommended.
Clearing the mooving area from any objects as stones, twigs, and toys are also a recommended task to do. Protective guards, shields, grass catcher, as well as other kinds of safety equipment, should be properly placed next to the mower. Make it sure that your mower is in its good condition.
3. Things to do while mowing
Wearing close-fitting clothes, safety glasses or goggles with side shields, closed-toe shoes equipped with slip-proof soles, close, and hearing protection is the first step you must do. You should also watch the object that you could pick up and throw by the blades of the mower. Never forget to caution sign close to corners, trees, or anything which are likely to block your view.
In such a situation as you strike an object, you should turn it off and inspect the machine. If it's damaged, stop mowing and get it fixed. Keep aware of the children & don't allow them to be close to the area you're working in.
