National Safety Council Provides Snow Shoveling Safety Tips

Posted: Updated:

The National Safety Council reminds you that shoveling heavy snow is no different than lifting weights at the gym so take your time.

It recommends using smaller shovels to control your lift size, contacting your doctor before shoveling if you have a history of heart problems, dressing warm, and if you need to take breaks, do so.
