Landscaping Safety Course – General Safety Tips

  • Ensure you are trained to use the landscaping tools and equipment safely, and you understand all the real and potential job hazards.
  • Know how to report unsafe working conditions or unsafe equipment to your supervisor.
  • Take regular breaks when doing strenuous work. Frequent shorter breaks are better than longer breaks further apart.
  • Be aware of emergency telephone numbers to call.
  • Know the location of the first aid kit and how to use the contents.
  • Use insect repellents or protective clothing as needed.
  • Be aware and alert if you could encounter unfriendly domestic animals or wild animals.
  • Carry an EpiPen or bee sting kit if there is a chance of developing a severe allergic reaction. Make sure your supervisor and co-workers are trained to assist you if required.
  • Always wear respiratory protection masks if you clean up waste, leaves, or dust that may contain mouse or bird droppings.
  • Be aware of the presence of ticks and be aware of Lyme disease. Seek medical attention if you have been bitten by a tick.
  • Be aware of mosquitoes and the risk of West Nile virus, as mosquitoes can carry this disease.
  • Be alert to expected weather conditions and plan accordingly, such as where to seek shelter if severe weather is encountered.
  • If working outdoors in hot climates, always use the proper level of sunscreen protection. Consider having a shaded area nearby to take breaks. If working in colder weather, take your breaks in heated areas.
  • If working with pesticides, always wash your hands thoroughly before eating or when using the washroom or working with different tools.
