    Proper instruction & information is critical:
    Do not use any lawn mower without proper instruction. Only trained operators are allowed to use the lawn mowers. Proper training must include a review of the operator’s manual, as well as a skills evaluation to assure that the operators understand the features of this piece of equipment and can use it safely.

    Hazards:
    • Many hazards are involved when using a lawn mower, including:
    • Flying particles of dirt or debris, or other particles discharged from the cutting deck.
    • Slopes, uneven, or unstable ground that could potentially result in rollovers or other unsafe conditions.
    • Objects in the path of travel can damage equipment or become projectiles when struck.
    • Exposure to outdoor environments including insects, sun, and allergens.
    • Noise exposure.
    • Exposure to exhaust gases such as carbon monoxide in poorly ventilated areas.
    • Burns from the exhaust system.
    • Exposure to mechanical hazards from the blades and other moving parts.
