There is a sense of natural apathy associated with power equipment accidents. The sad reality is that I feel that I am trying an innovative approach to creating yard safety awareness. I do not see anything wrong with my approach, yet I share some recent feedback from two loyal supporters of Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man with different opinions below:

"Your endeavor is seen as very, very, very weird. No real, normal, rich, powerful, successful people want anything to do with a poor peasant buffoon like you."

"You are a pioneer. A real pilgrim in the fight for yard saftey. You should be canonized someday."

I appreciate these words of encouragement, and I continue to forge ahead with my yard safety awareness crusade. Furthermore, I have learned that nobody really cares about yard accidents until they or someone they know gets hurt. The power equipment people think that the yard accidents are the result of human behavior and poor judgment. The yard accident victims (if alive) believe that there were not enough safety precautions. I recognize that there is significant room for improvement in communicating the yard safety message and improving yard safety education. I do not think that Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man is weird. I think that my approach is necessary in order to create some awareness so that yard safety accidents can finally be prevented. Yard safety is not a joke, yet the serious approach has not solved the problem. Therefore, The Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man Show continues.

If asked specifically, most people express appreciation and gratitude for my yard safety awareness. Otherwise, nobody really cares even though about 500,000 individuals each year experience a yard accident. It is a very bizarre phenomenon. Think before you cut. It hurts. (tm)

Yard Safety Awareness Day

Today is Wednesday, June 21, 2006. It is the First Day of Summer 2006. It is Yard Safety Awareness Day (YSAD). YSAD? I am sad because I am thinking about all of the people who had yard accidents and got hurt or died. I celebrate because I want to create awareness so that other people can be rescued from yard accidents and live safe lives. Please take a moment and learn more about yard safety. Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man is here today so that yard accidents go away.

National Safety Month


Welcome to the National Safety Month Celebration.

This month, we mark the 10th anniversary of National Safety Month.

This annual observance reflects the Council’s historical commitment to influencing people to adopt and maintain safe and healthy behaviors in all aspects of their lives.

The National Safety Council established National Safety Month in 1996 to increase public awareness of safety and health risks and ultimately decrease the number of accidental injuries and deaths.

Since then, thousands of businesses, national safety and health leaders, community groups and organizations have come to embrace the national observance as an annual focal point for promoting safety during the summer months and throughout the year.

We are proud of our achievements in increasing awareness of safe and healthy practices, of our efforts to instill a culture of safety in businesses across the nation, and of our vision for making the world a safer place.

Weekly Observance:
June 5-9 Driving
June 12-16 Workplace
June 19-23 Emergency Preparedness
June 26-30 Home and Community

Likewise, Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man wants to promote yard safety awareness so that people and animals do not hurt while in the yard. Therefore, Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man (sm) has designated the FIRST DAY OF EACH SEASON as Yard Safety Awareness Day (tm). I recognize that the grass grows and the snow falls year-round all around the world. There is always a grass cut and snow removal season somewhere in the world. For instance, the Month of June marks the First Day of Summer.

Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man (sm) really loves baseball. I wish that Major League Baseball would designate June 21st (First Day of Summer) as Yard Safety Awareness Day (tm) at all MLB and NCAA ballparks, including the Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man Bobble Head Doll (tm) as a yard safety promotional item. I dream of the establishment of Yard Safety Awareness Day (tm), pushing my toy lawn mower before a packed stadium and broadcasted via the scoreboard to all Major League Baseball and NCAA ballparks. Ironically, I now have nine toes - one for each inning of a regulation professional baseball game.

Since several people spend considerable time in their yards during the National Safety Month of June, Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man (sm) wants to create awareness about yard safety. Please visit the Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man website to study and apply some yard safety tips.

Think before you cut. It hurts. (tm)
