Types of Landscaping Related Injuries

Common causes of injury or death while landscaping are:

  • Amputation: Toes and fingers are subject to possible amputation when working with landscaping tools with sharp blades such as pruning shears and lawn mowers.
  • Back injuries: There is a lot of heavy lifting and pulling in landscaping that can result in permanent injury to the lower back.
  • Falls: Landscaping often requires individuals to climb trees or cut tree limbs from rooftops which can result in quick slips and falls.
  • Poisoning: There are a number of toxic chemicals which are utilized during landscaping such as fertilizers and weed killer.

While landscaping can be a profitable endeavor, safety should always come first.
