Safety First: The Dangers You Face When Mowing Your Lawn

Mowing the lawn is a fairly easy job. All you need to do is plug in your lawnmower and make sure that you don’t miss any patches of grass, right? The truth is that a lot of people don’t realise the dangers that you face when you mow the lawn until something happens and even then, it is too late to do something about it. When you mow the lawn, you run the risk of running over the wire, losing control of the mower itself and you also need to worry about those who are around you as well. You may think that some of these can be prevented by just being careful but the truth is that you can’t always see what is about to happen and the results can be far worse than you realise. After all, lawn mowers use ultra sharp blades to slice through the grass and if anything gets caught in the way, there can be serious consequences. So what is the biggest risk when you’re out mowing the lawn? It is actually the things that you can’t see. When you mow the lawn, you may run over sticks, stones and other debris. If these get wrapped up in the blades then they can be projected out and this can cause a serious injury. On top of this, you also need to worry about the blades as well because if these become dislodged in the process, when you start the mower back up again, you put you and everyone around you at risk.
You may think, if you keep your grass short enough that you don’t need to worry about sticks and stones because you will always be able to see them to move them but this is simply not the case. Stones, no matter how small they are can cause serious injury and even death in some instances. This is especially the case when you think of a stone travelling at over 100mph in a closed environment.
So what lawnmowers are most at risk of making this happen? Most of them actually, it doesn’t matter whether you have a lawnmower that you drive or whether you have a lawnmower that is operated by hand, every device delivers just as much risk and if you don’t project yourself then you are certainly at risk.
