Why is it important for operators using lawn and grounds equipment to wear personal protection equipment (PPE)?


According to Pete Fernald, Shindaiwa Technical Services and Training Manager, “It is important for customers not to take chances and skip wearing PPE. This is power equipment. It has no memory, and no conscience; it doesn’t care who you are or what it cuts.” By offering safety equipment at the time of sale, dealers are demonstrating to customers that they also care about their health and well being.


Besides wearing PPE, what can operators of outdoor power equipment do to enhance safety?


Even experienced operators should participate in additional safety training. Shindaiwa has a selection of quality safety training videos available through our network of distributors and dealers. Ask your local Shindaiwa dealer for more information on available training.


A world leader in producing commercial-grade outdoor power equipment and environmentally-friendly small engine technologies, Shindaiwa distributes its products exclusively through clean two-step distribution and independent servicing dealers.
