Landscape Safety Training

Oct 12, 2009 | Lawns, Services

For your safety and theirs, it is extremely important that your landscape providers are trained in handling their equipment in a safe and professional manner. Do you know if your landscape provider ensures that their employees are up to date on the latest safety standards?

On Tuesday, October 6, 2009, management and employees of Johnson’s Landscaping Service, Inc. participated in a landscape safety training.  The goals of the training included the following:

  1. Identify landscaping safety issues by distributing a copy of “Landscape Safety Topics” manual written by the Farm Safety Association, www.wsps.ca/fsa
  2. Identify the necessary standards for landscape safety by training and referring to manual.

Topics included safe handling of vehicles, lawn mowers, string trimmers, chain saws, machetes, gas trimmers, and quick-cut saws.  In addition, general landscape safety rules were covered with an emphasis on everyone wearing personal protective equipment.  As a guide to safety standards, participants used the Farm Safety Association Manual for the landscape industry.  This booklet is standard fare in all Johnson’s Landscaping Service, Inc.’s trucks.
