HARTFORD, CT(WFSB) -
Emergency departments are expected to see a rise in cleanup related injuries from Sandy and now hospital officials are offering tips to residents to prevent injuries.
The following tips are being offered by Hartford Hospital:
Know your limits! Leave the job of cutting down a broken tree, which could weigh several tons, to a professional cutter.
Wear protective clothing when clearing trees, fallen branches and wood debris. A hard hat is recommended, and goggles will protect your eyes against flying splinters and chips.
Do not wear slippery shoes or baggy clothing that could catch in the brush and cause you to fall; always watch your footing while working with power tools.
Be careful with ladders. We are seeing injuries as people lose their footing and fall off ladders.
Try not to work when you are tired or when you are alone. Many accidents occur in the late afternoon, when you are tired.
When picking up heavy wood debris, avoid back injury by getting help. Even a 2-foot log can weigh as much as 100 pounds.
Be extremely careful when using chain saws and power tools. Re-read safety manuals before you start.
Because a power saw is noisy, you should always wear hearing protectors.
Keep children and pets out of the area when you are clearing brush and debris.
Be careful working around young, thin trees when other trees or debris have fallen across them. A bent tree can act like a spring pole, propelling a chain saw back into your leg or body.
Never, ever attempt to clear downed power lines. Report downed power lines to your utility providers and let them remove or fix downed wires.
Turn power tools off when carrying it from one fallen limb to another. Working conditions may be hazardous - heavy brush, slippery ground surface, or steep slopes.
