Fall is the time to clear out the remains of summer gardens from the yard. Keep your feet and ankles safe from injury by following these helpful tips:
- Wear Appropriate Shoes for the Task. No matter how warm it is, don’t wear sandals. Wear sturdy leather shoes with support to protect your feet from sharp objects, including the blades from power equipment.
- Speaking of Power Equipment… Keep Children Away. Protect your kids and others from severe trauma. Leaf blowers, power lawn mowers and chainsaws should not be left out where kids are playing or where other inexperienced users have access.
- Don’t Work on Wet Surfaces. You could easily slip and injure an ankle when carrying heavy loads across wet grass or leaves in your yard.
