Tips for Shoveling Snow Safely


"National Safety Council recommends the following tips to shovel safely:


Do not shovel after eating or while smoking

Take it slow and stretch out before you begin

Shovel only fresh, powdery snow; it's lighter

Push the snow rather than lifting it

If you do lift it, use a small shovel or only partially fill the shovel

Lift with your legs, not your back

Do not work to the point of exhaustion

Know the signs of a heart attack, and stop immediately and call 911 if you're experiencing any of them; every minute counts"

These tips are shared from today's Albany County, NY email.
