We all know snow removal can be considered good exercise, but it can also be very dangerous. This winter season, make sure you have a handle on staying safe while clearing your sidewalks and walk ways. These tips can provide extra safety precautions you may have forgotten from last season.
- If you have a history of heart trouble, check with your doctor before shoveling.
- Take it easy.
- Stretch both before and after shoveling.
- Push the snow forward rather than lifting it out of the way.
- Take frequent breaks.
- Dress for the weather.
