  • Don’t allow children under age 12 to operate a push mower or those under 16 to drive a riding mower.

  • When children and adolescents are old enough to use mowers, teach them safety steps such as wearing goggles and sturdy shoes.

  • Do not allow children to ride on mowers as passengers.

  • Keep children off the lawn while mowing.

  • Pick up potential flying objects such as stones and toys before you start mowing.

  • Do not pull a mower backward or ride it in reverse unless absolutely necessary. If you do mow backwards, carefully look for children behind you.
