Snow Shoveling Safety Tips

We hope to see you soon...

but NOT with newly acquired injuries from snow shoveling!

These tips are excellent -

1. Warm up your spine with stretching before you shovel

2. Bend knees, keep back straight

3. Keep feet apart for a strong stance

4. Scoop & lift upwards with your LEGS, not your back

5. "Take small bites" - don't scoop more snow than you can handle

6. Keep shovel close to your body

7. Avoid twisting - point your body in the direct you plan to throw the snow

8. Push snow forward instead of throwing to the side

9. Take frequent breaks; don't overdo it!
