Pursuing DIY Projects? Be Careful Not to Lose a Toe...
Getting started on DIY projects at home can be extremely fun but very dangerous...
With summer just around the corner, you’re probably excited to get back outside or in the garage – giving your power tools some love – and spicing things up around the house.
Many do-it-yourself enthusiasts fall victim to painful mistakes… resulting in injury and rendering them useless.
Here are a few of the most common painful experiences to pay close attention to:
#1) Bump-nailing nails on your feet
It happens more often than you think. If you bump your boot while bump nailing – you may accidentally nail your foot.
#2) Slipping on a ladder
The most common DIY accidents happen on ladders. Wearing any type of shoes that are not anti-slip can increase your chances of slipping even if you’re being careful.
#3) Powerful drill accidentally forcing you off balance
When the bit in a powerful drill binds or stops suddenly, the torque of the power tool can knock you off your ladder. Make sure you are standing in a firm position so you don’t get knocked off balance.
Hopefully, these unfortunate mishaps can serve as a lesson so you can prevent them from ever happening to you.
As you may have noticed…
Most of these accidents can be easily prevented!
Perhaps the most important safety precaution you can take is to…
Invest in high-quality gear like protective work shoes.
Having a pair of flat-footed vans or new balances can drastically increase your chances of slipping or stubbing your toe and injuring yourself.
That’s why our #1 recommendation for DIY enthusiasts is a good pair of anti-slip and protective footwear.
