Be Safety Ways for Hedge Trimmer

Dress properly

Always wear protective gear and clothing before starting the unit. Basic protective gear include: safety face shield or goggles, ear protection, no-slip work gloves, steel-toed boots, long pants, and a respirator. Do not wear loose clothing or any other item that might get caught in the mechanism. Tie your hair up so that it’s out of the way.

Sharp and clean cut better

Before turning it on, make sure the blades are sharp and free of obstruction. Dull blades are less efficient and safe and are more likely to rebound.

Check before you flick

Inspect the hedge trimmer for visible signs of moisture or damage before turning it on. Repair or replace parts as needed.

Keep it dry

It should be a no-brainer that you shouldn’t operate electrical tools and machines in rainy or wet weather. Doing so might cause electric shock, electrocuting you and damaging the trimmer. If you’re out working and see storm clouds on the horizon, stop working immediately and head for cover.

Use both hands

Never attempt to operate a hedge trimmer with only one hand, and always make sure to use the proper handles or strap while using it. Obviously, you should keep your hands away from the blades.

Shut it down

Always make sure the trimmer is switched off before doing maintenance, cleaning, clearing an obstruction in the tool, before plugging it in (for the corded models) or even while carrying it. If your hedge trimmer is a battery-operated one, remove the battery before attempting anything on it. Don’t keep your finger or hand on the tool to avoid accidental startup.

Steady as she goes

When using a hedge trimmer, make sure you’re on a firm, level surface. Don’t overreach and wear slip-resistant, steel-toed boots. Never, ever work from a ladder or a stool. For hard to reach areas, always use a scissor lift or an equivalent.

Stay sharp

Under no circumstances should you operate a hedge trimmer while intoxicated. Alcohol isn’t the only thing you can’t consume before working — any substance that might impair your sight, hearing and ability to focus like over-the-counter medication shouldn’t be taken as well.
