This time of year can be beautiful with the changing leaves and the crisp, cool weather. What’s not so beautiful is all the leaves and branches that end up in your yard at the end of fall. If you plan on doing some yard work this fall, be sure to be cautious and follow these safety tips from Nationwide Vision:

  • When doing yard work this fall, be sure to wear protective gear like googles and gloves to protect yourself from debris in your yard. You’ll also want to wear closed toe shoes to prevent falls. If you’re spraying any chemicals or if you have allergies or asthma, you should also wear a mask.
  • If you plan on using a ladder to reach your gutters or any trees, make sure that your ladder is on level, sturdy ground. Have another person present and standing at the bottom of the ladder whenever the ladder is in use. If you have any balance issues, it’s better to have someone else climb the ladder.
  • To prevent any strains or sprains, don’t lift any heavy objects. If you absolutely have to, be sure to bend at the knees rather than the waist. 
  • Take frequent breaks and drink plenty of water whenever you’re doing any sort of yard work.
