    Proper instruction & information is critical:
    Do not use any gasoline-powered blower without proper instruction. Employees must be properly trained to operate this equipment safely. Proper training must include a review of the operator’s manual as well as a skills evaluation to assure that you understand the features of this piece of equipment and can use it safely.

    Hazards:
    Many hazards are involved when using a gasoline-powered blower including the following:
    • Exposing the public to noise and flying debris.
    • Property damage caused by flying debris.
    • Foreign objects in the eyes (dirt, debris, or other particles).
    • Slopes, uneven, or unstable ground that could potentially result in slips, trips, or falls.
    • Diverted attention—watching what you are blowing, not where you are walking.
