How to Practice Personal Safety When Doing DIY Jobs

8/29/2017 11:28 PM Comments Posted By Floralyn Teodoro
With the boom of DIY home renovation projects, the number of home accidents each year also increased. To prevent this from happening to you, safety should be your top priority.

Unsafe DIY home renovation projects have led to hundreds of thousands of people turning up to the hospital for injuries each year. Most of these accidents are caused by falls and trips from ladders, cuts from knives and scalpels, fires, and many more.

To make sure you’re safe when performing DIY projects, practice the following DIY safety tips:

Always wear protective clothing.

When it comes to your attire, be practical. Nix unnecessary clothing and accessories like watches, necklaces, bracelets, and the like. Wear personal protective equipment (PPE) instead.

To be completely protected from any safety hazard, wear protective equipment like ear muffs, safety glasses, safety visor or helmet, gloves, face masks, safety boots, and other safety gear depending on your specific DIY project. Never neglect to wear these PPEs for safety.

Erect your ladders properly.

Ladders are one of the top causes of DIY accidents. According to the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors, 300 deaths in the U.S. each year are caused by ladders.

To prevent injuries and fatalities when using ladders, always read the manufacturer’s instructions on how to use the ladder. In addition, practice the 4-to-1 rule. The ladder should also be tall enough to make it the best ladder for the job. If not, skip using it and find another one.

Declutter and clean your working area.

A cluttered workstation can make you trip or fall especially when you’re not looking and too busy with the DIY you’re working on. To avoid this, clean and declutter your working space.

A clean space equals a safe place to work on your DIY project. An unkempt working area can lead to serious hazards apart from trips and falls. Keep away food and drinks when you’re working on a project. Water or any beverage is dangerous when placed near anything electric.

Have a first aid kit available.

No DIY workstation should ever be without a first aid kit readily available. Secure one that’s well-stocked, easy to carry, and can be opened quickly in the case of an accident or booboo.

The basic things your first aid kit must carry include bandages, sterile gauze dressings, plaster of different sizes, safety pins, tweezers, disposable sterile gloves, “butterfly” bandages, instant cold packs, eyewash solution, anti-bacterial ointment, sterile eye dressings, adhesive tape, etc.

Only use the appropriate tools.

If you want a safe, high-quality DIY project, invest in high-quality equipment and tools. More than making your DIY tasks much safer, they can help you do your DIY tasks quicker as well.

As much as possible use the appropriate tools needed for a specific DIY task. Don’t improvise. You should also make sure that your tools don’t have frayed cords, broken casings, damages, etc. Tools that are inappropriate and not functioning properly can cause serious hazards.

Keep children and pets away.

When you’re working on a DIY project, make sure to keep your children or pets away from your workspace. More so, after working on your project, keep your power tools out of their reach.

Your child’s curiosity can lead them to disasters like falls, poisoning, electrocution, and many more when you let them be with you while you’re working on a DIY project. To keep yourself and your children safe during a DIY, it’s best to arrange for your children to be somewhere else.

Know when to ask for professional help.

You should know your limits when it comes to doing things yourself at home. Some home improvement tasks and projects are much wiser to be handed to the experts for your safety.

Although hiring a professional can appear costly at first, costly mistakes and safety hazards can be avoided. Among the home improvement projects that require a professional’s expertise include electrical work, gas fittings, window installation, plumbing jobs, and other similar major projects.

Don’t be a part of the growing statistics of injuries and casualties from DIYs each year. Consider the above tips and practice personal safety when doing all sorts of DIY projects in your home.
