This man was in the process of changing his lawnmower’s oil, using a disposable aluminum catch pan, which was filled with absorbent cat litter, both of which would be discarded in a safe, eco-friendly manner.

Though the act of mowing one’s lawn is rigorous, it is a great form of exercise, which exposes one to fresh, outdoor air, and sunshine. However, precautions need be taken against the inhalation of airborne irritants and pollutants, as well as against the suns powerful rays, by appropriately applying sunscreen to exposed skin.

It is also important to note that proper handwashing is a must, after working in any outdoor environment, thereby, removing contaminants from the skin surface, and from beneath the fingernails, including viruses such as H1N1.
