The Dangers of Lawn Mowing

Movies like Jaws and Deep Blue Sea may have impacted your perceptions of the beach, but the likelihood of being attacked by a shark is still incredibly low. In fact, humans are more at risk of being killed by a lawnmower than they ever would by a great white or even a snake!

Actually, lawnmowers also have a higher chance of causing deaths compared to that of alligator and bear attacks, according to a report that tracked emergency room visits associated with mowing injuries in the USA.

The study reports over 875 emergency room visits are due to lawn mower accidents every day and there are over 90 deaths annually!!

Liam is drafting an epar Stand UP Talk that will summarise the data and reinforce the need for your staff to be ever vigilant when using mowing equipment. We will release this important new Stand UP Talk next week.
