When the driveway and walkways are coated in a thick blanket of snow, it is time to get a shovel out for what some consider to be a dreaded chore. But before you tackle the first snowfall of the season, take some time to read these safety snow shoveling tips to help avoid any potential injuries.
Snow shoveling can lead to a number of health risks for many people, from back injuries to heart attacks. The mix of cold temperatures and physical exertion increases the workload on the heart,¹ which may increase the risk of a heart attack for some. According to the American Heart Association, even walking through heavy, wet snow can place strain on your heart.
The following tips can help keep you safer when you set out to shovel:
- Warm up. Warm your muscles before heading out to shovel by doing some light movements, such as bending side to side or walking in place.
- Push rather than lift. Pushing the snow with the shovel instead of lifting can help reduce the strain on your body. When lifting snow, bend your knees and use your legs when possible.
- Lighten your load. Consider using a lighter-weight plastic shovel instead of a metal one to help decrease the weight being lifted.
- Hit the pause button. Pace yourself and be sure to take frequent breaks. Consider taking a break after 20 to 33 minutes of shoveling, especially when the snow is wet.
- Consider multiple trips. Consider shoveling periodically throughout the storm to avoid having to move large amounts of snow at once.
- Keep up with snowfall. Try to shovel snow shortly after it falls, when it is lighter and fluffier. The longer snow stays on the ground, the wetter it can become. Wet snow is heavier and harder to move.
- Wear layers. Dress in layers and remove them as you get warm to help maintain a comfortable body temperature.
- Stay hydrated. Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated while shoveling.
A national study² found that the most common shoveling-related injuries were to the lower back. Cardiac-related injuries account for only 8% of all injuries, but they were the most serious in nature. If you do not exercise on a regular basis, are middle-aged or older, or have any health conditions, such as heart disease or high blood pressure, you should check with your doctor before doing any strenuous shoveling. Consider using a snow blower or snow removal service as an alternative means of snow removal.
Snow and Ice Removal Requirements
Snow and ice not only pose a potential risk to you but also to others. As a property owner, you are responsible for making a reasonable effort to keep public walking areas around your property clear of snow and ice. Pre-treating your walkways and other paved surfaces with an anti-icing product can help make snow and ice removal easier.
Consider stocking up on ice melt in advance, as it sometimes sells out during long winters. You can store unused ice melt in an airtight container, out of reach from children and pets. Be aware that rock salt can damage brick, stone, asphalt and concrete walkways.
Be sure to check your local codes and ordinances regarding snow and ice removal requirements.

A shovel is an absolute must if you live in an area that gets its share of snowfall every winter. An ergonomic snow shovel is the type of shovel because it protects the back from potential harm. When using this type of snow shovel it is not necessary to lift, twist or even bend the body. It is recommended that you keep your back as straight as possible as you scoop the snow. Do the same when lifting the shovel and dumping the snow in a designated spot. Here are some other benefits of ergonomic shovels: There is no lifting with the Masi polar Plus snow pusher shovel with a deep 33 inch scoop.
Bent Handle and Lightweight Design
An ergonomic snow shovel has a bent handle which does the work for you. Ergonomic shovels are lightweight and made of aluminum.
Safety in shoveling is one of the greatest benefits of ergonomic shovels. You are limited in how much snow you can pick up, so the potential for injury is greatly reduced. The scoop is smaller than other types of shovels, which means that you can lift a moderate portion of snow at a time and therefore will not expend too much energy at once.
The handle on an ergonomic snow shovel is adjustable for your height. It can work just as well for a right handed person as a left handed person. When put into the shorter position it can be put away for easy storage.

10 safety tips for snow shoveling - Masi Nova Max snow pusher shovel - no lifting. safe on the back October 26, 2015 11:40In The Bleak Mid-winter: 10 Tips for Safe Snow Shoveling
Tips for Safe Snow Shoveling
Tip # 1.
If you experience pain of any kind, stop immediately and seek assistance.
Tip # 2.
Choose a snow shovel that is right for you!
- Be sure that your shovel has a curved handle, as this enables you to keep your back straighter when shoveling.
- Obtain a shovel with an appropriate length handle. The length is correct when you can slightly bend your knees, flex your back 10 degrees or less, and hold the shovel comfortably in your hands at the start of the "shoveling stroke".
- A plastic shovel blade will generally be lighter than a metal one, thus putting less strain on your spine.
- Sometimes, a smaller blade is better than a larger blade. Although a small blade can't shovel as much, it avoids the risk of trying to pick up a too heavy pile of snow with a larger blade.
Tip # 3.
Push the snow, do not lift it. Pushing puts far less strain on the spine than lifting.
Tip # 4.
Be sure your muscles are warm before you start shoveling. Cold, tight muscles are more likely to sprain or strain than warm, relaxed muscles.
Tip # 5.
When you grip the shovel, make sure your hands are at least 12 inches apart. By creating distance between your hands, you increase your leverage and reduce the strain on your body.
Tip # 6.
Your shoveling technique is very important. The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons recommends: "If you must lift the snow, lift it properly. Squat with your legs apart, knees bent and back straight. Lift with your legs. Do not bend at the waist. Scoop small amounts of snow into the shovel and walk to where you want to dump it. Holding a shovel of snow with your arms outstretched puts too much weight on your spine. Never remove deep snow all at once; do it piecemeal. Shovel and inch or two; then take another inch off. Rest and repeat if necessary." In addition to these comments, remember to move your feet rather than twisting.
Tip # 7.
Never throw snow over your shoulder.
Tip # 8.
Remember that wet snow can be very heavy. One full shovel load can weigh as much as 25 pounds.
Tip # 9.
Pace yourself by taking frequent breaks to gently stretch your back, arms and legs.
Consider buying a snow-blower. When used correctly, a snow-blower will put far less strain on your back than snow shoveling.
By following these tips, you are far less likely to be injured while shoveling snow.also, use a Masi polar plus snow pusher from Finland since there is no lifting and has an ergonomic and adjustable handle and scoop.
