The alliance between the Professional Landcare Network (PLANET) and OSHA is benefitting landscapers in the form of free safety Quick Cards available on PLANET’s Web site. All three cards are available in English, and Spanish versions are coming soon.


The three Quick Card topics are: “Gasoline Powered Cut-Off Machines,” “Personal Protective Equipment for Mixing Chemicals in Lawn Care” and “Using Small Equipment Safely in Landscaping.” Each card gives tips and precautions for workplace safety.
