Home Improvement Safety Reminders


More than 4 million people who undergo home improvement projects get injured each year.



Thatís why itís important for any do-it-yourself fan to keep a first-aid kit, safety goggles, leather gloves, good shoes, ear protection and a dust mask handy.

And, donít start on the project without keeping the following precautions in mind:

  • Ladders. Falls from this common household item cause more than 160,000 injuries yearly. To prevent ladder spills, wear nonskid shoes and avoid reaching or stepping over the safe-standing step (two rungs from the top of a stepladder or four rungs from the top of a standard ladder).

  • Electric wires. Use rubber-grip tools and avoid touching base wires.

  • Power tools. Itís simple. Read the manual.

  • Call a professional. Call the experts if the materials for your project go over $5,000.
