  Health Tip: Use Lawn Mowers Safely
Make sure you read instructions

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- Lawn mowers can be dangerous machines if used incorrectly. Following a few safety guidelines can help reduce the risk of accidents and injuries.

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons offers these lawn mower safety tips:

  • Before using your mower, read the instruction manual carefully.
  • Never remove any safety equipment, such as shields or switch guards.
  • Never add fuel to the mower when it is hot or running.
  • Always turn off the engine before stepping away.
  • Avoid touching the engine, which can become very hot and cause burns.
