A Late Summer Safety Reminder
Yesterday I cut the grass in our yard for the first time since late June. It just didn't rain and the grass didn't grow until this past week. As always I wore my safety boots (Green Tag). I own these for no other purpose than to cut my grass. I value my toes and feet and wouldn't put them at risk by going bare foot or by wearing flip flops to cut my grass. I also insist that anyone I have hired to cut my grass, also wear safety boots.
I have an uncle who lost his big toe to his lawn mower several decades back. To this day it affects his walking, with every step he misses that toe.
Next time you cut your grass, remember to put on your safety boots and do your feet a favour.
