Shoveling tips

WEST MICHIGAN (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - If you are headed outside to tackle a shoveling job, we want to share a few tips from the National Safety Council.

First, if you have a history of heart trouble, do not shovel without a doctor's permission.

Don't lift the snow, but push it when shoveling. Remember to use your legs, not your back.

Also, don't work to the point of exhaustion.

And, of course, dress warm.
