Module 2: Being Safe with Grounds Equipment

This video was funded and approved by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. It emphasizes safe handling and operating procedures for mowers, weed-eaters, blowers, edgers, and power pruners. It begins at the shop where workers check equipment and make certain they have the appropriate personal protection gear for the day. Then, they safely secure the equipment on the truck for transport. Once in the field, workers demonstrate the safe use of equipment to protect themselves, co-workers, passing motorists, and pedestrians. Guidelines for safe field maintenance and repairs are also provided. Filmed with Nature Scapes, Lilburn, Ga.
