  • Snow Shoveling Safety
  • It's an early winter and snow is here, and with it so is snow shoveling and snow-blowing. These activities, especially shoveling, can be hard on your shoulders, back and knees.  Some tips to decrease the risk of snow removal injuries include:
    - warming up before you start the activity,
    - taking smaller scoops at one time,
    - using your legs to aid in shoveling so the stress isn’t all on your back and shoulders,
    - breaking it up into multiple sessions if the amount of the snow is significant,
  • Using proper posture as described in this image, can be helpful too.Image may contain: shoes
