    does that apply while mowing residential stuff too, or do they just care when you're doing commercial?

    He told us whenever using power equipment. Its a good idea to wear protection anyways, I get stuff in my eyes all the time when I am whipping and you ony get one pair of eyes.

    Yes, I agree that it's always a good idea- I just didn't know if they cared about while doing houses along with commercial stuff.

    I've been hearing an awful lot about OSHA lately.. what ever happened to the DOT stuff? Haha

    I'm not yet cert. I will be going this fall after they update the program. Michigan Certified Nurseryman (MCN) Committee, is currently in the process of updating and revising the certification program. Under the updated program, there will be several different specialty areas. Two of them will be: Certified Landscape Contractor and Certified Landscape Manager. The new reference and study manuals will be out in the fall (target date is October 1) and will be available in paper and digital format. You study for the exam on your own and then they offer various locations throughout the state to take the exams. They also offer exam review sessions. You are not required to purchase the manuals to take the exams, but the tests are based on the information in the manuals. The certifications are offered to a person and stay with that person no matter what company they work for.:weightlifter:

    However I have years of knowledge and always looking to learn more and as much as I can, you only get one shot in life I want to do it with as lil F ups as possible....Knowledge is Power:weightlifter:

    When I am mowing my glasses are on from the time I jump in the truck in the morning to the time we unload at the end of the day and I always have a pair of corded plugs around my neck. I would like to see an OSHA pamphlet for the regs.

    Thats funny. I actually have a little 4x6 trailer that looks exactly like that I use to tow behind my little S10 to do gardening, weed pulling, and other little stuff.

    Northville?? You sure that isnt Flint? Half the people around here are driving similar sh*t. Im working down in Ann Arbor now and you dont see that as much. Whole different mentality down there. People are laid back, nice, wave, friendly. Clients come out and give us food, water, etc... Folks in Flint just want to complain and be angry constantly.

    We havent skipped a mow yet on any of our route's, by the way. Side work seems to be steady enough to get everyone 40 hours as well.
