The new mowers can be converted through Propane Power Systems CARB- and EPA-certified conversion kits. Jeremy Wishart, PERC director of offroad business development, believes the program will be a lasting solution for contractors' businesses.

Ways to con - serve water include: limiting turf areas and changing irrigation timers seasonally. Signed June 21, OSHA has part - nered with the International Safety Equipment Asso - ciation to provide information on per - sonal protective and safety equipment.
