  • Health and Safety on a Golf Course

    Golf course safety is often overlooked until an accident or problem occurs. Maintaining a golf course is a business and safety must be part of every business. The budget for all golf courses should include safety equipment, facility improvements, regulatory compliance, staff training on the need for a safe workplace, and safe places for golfers to enjoy recreation. After an accident, safety is often a priority.

    The golf course industry faces a number of unique hazards, including wild animals, bodies of water, tall trees and slopes, and steep inclines. These hazards can lead to serious injuries, such as broken bones, head injuries and sprains. In addition, golf courses have a number of chemical hazards, for example, pesticides and fertilizers that can be harmful to people. This can result in chemical burns, respiratory problems and eye irritation.

    Important things to do before playing golf are:
    • Before starting a new sport, get a physical.
    • Evaluate the weather. Never make the effort to play during storms.
    • Before playing, stretch and warm up.
    • Practice some swings. Start swinging with shorter clubs to get used to it.‚Äč
