Spring Clean Up Safety

Spring is in the air and many of us are gearing up for yard work, gardening and just plain cleaning up from the winter. This is a time when our activity level increases and we may not be use to this amount of exertion. Following is a list of things that might make your Spring a little bit safer.

ALWAYS USE PROPER SAFETY EQUIPMENT

  1. Sturdy Shoes
  2. Gloves
  3. Safety Glasses
  4. Hearing Protection
  5. Filter Mask if needed

REMEMBER TO ALWAYS USE PROPER LADDERS AND STEP STOOLS AS DIRECTED

USE THE PROPER TOOL FOR THE JOB

CHECK FIRE EXTINGUISHERS TO ENSURE THEY ARE READY FOR USE IF NEEDED

TAKE FREQUENT BREAKS

Remember the City of Hastings does allow burning in the city limits BUT, there are regulations and requirements that have to be met including having the proper permit. The regulations can be found on the Fire Department web page in the Prevention, Safety and Education tab under burn and candle permits.

Hope your Spring Cleaning is productive and safe.
