Workers' Compensation for Landscapers

When you look out at your lawn or garden from your home or office, it’s easy to see the benefit of having a groundskeeper keep up its natural beauty. The work of a groundskeeper is obvious and necessary to keep our communities beautiful. While many of us don’t consider the commitment and hard work that goes into the duties of a groundskeeper, their work is necessary to keep our community beautiful.

What do groundskeepers do?

Groundskeepers work tirelessly to keep up with the landscapes around homes, offices, and communities beautiful. Often their job requires pruning trees, mowing lawns, and the general upkeep of property.

A Groundskeeper may use a number of the following tools to carry out a day’s work:

  • Tractors
  • Saws
  • Lawnmowers
  • Chippers
  • Mulchers
  • Various other powered and non-powered tools

Proper training and safety precautions are necessary when using these potentially dangerous tools. Even the most experienced groundskeeper can still get severe on-the-job injuries due to external factors such as weather. On a rainy day, slipperiness and malfunctioning equipment are additions to the daily physical demands of landscaping like bending, lifting, and shoveling. All of these risk factors and physical demands pave a path for some very serious work-related injuries.

Potential Work-Related Injuries for Groundskeepers:

  • Falling from a tree, ladder, or equipment
  • Sprains, strains
  • Cuts, lacerations, or punctures
  • Bruises, contusions
  • Fractures
  • Overexertion from lifting
  • In some cases, even death

It may not seem like much goes into making our spaces beautiful but our groundskeeper’s risk a great deal to get their job done well every day. For that reason, there are many workers' compensation laws set up to protect them in case of injury on the job.
