Snow will be here before you know it. We want to make sure you are safe this winter! Here are some tips to keep in mind this winter for safe snow removal at your home.
Dress for the weather: You want to dress appropriately for the weather. Be sure to dress in light layers that are made of water repellent material. Wear boots or shoes with slip resistant soles to prevent slipping on ice or snow.
Clear snow away often and early: You will want to start shoveling or snow blowing while there is a light layer of snow. This way, the snow will not stick and pack down to the ground.
Keep watch: Make sure your scarf or hat doesn’t block your vision. Be sure to watch your step to avoid uneven surfaces or ice patches.
Fuel up early: Fill the snow blower with fuel before you begin. You want to make sure you never fill the snowblower with gas while the engine is running or hot.
Watch your kids: Make sure your children stay away from the snow blower while you are clearing snow. No one under the age of 16 should ever operate the snow blower. Make sure older teens are well instructed before you let them use the snow blower.
Be responsible: You should never leave your snow blower unattended while it is running. If snow gets jammed in the snow blower, shut off the engine and wait at least one minute before you remove the snow.
Read the manual: Before you use your snow blower, read your owner’s manual to be fully aware of how the machine works.
