Never had any issues. I did see were one guy on here got it with an edger. You have to be aware of your surroundings at all times and watch were you put your hands and feet.

In another life I worked really close with OSHA and IIRC 99.7% of all incidents could have been avoided by the operator, the other .3% were out of operators control.

Speaking of OSHA steel toe is probably a requirement. If I can I'll look it up.

Couldn't find a definitive PPE list. From OSHA's website:

Lawn and Landscape Maintenance: This activity includes such tasks as mowing, pruning, fertilizing, general clean-up, blowing, and providing safe transport for crew to and from the job site.

Primary hazards include*
Solutions below.

* Cuts and amputations
Keep clear of rotating mower and brush-cutting blades.

* Hand injuries
Wear gloves.

* Chemical exposure
Read and obey Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) form information/Implement effective hazard communication program that includes employee training.

* Eye injury
Wear protective goggles when using blowers.

*Hearing loss
Wear ear protection when using power equipment.

* Ergonomics
Maintain comfortable mower settings/Use safe-lifting techniques.

* Vehicle accidents
Train drivers.
