Snow Shovel Safety

Shoveling Techniques

  • Never use a shovel that is too large, it requires extra effort and will tire you out.
  • Push snow whenever possible and lift only when necessary
  • Lift with you legs and knees, not with your back
  • Keep a reasonable pace: do not do long strenuous shifts and over exert yourself
  • Refuel with water and healthy foods
