Safety Risks for Google Handyman & DIYers

Recently, more Aussie have been trying their hand at dangerous DIY jobs. With a power tool and a smart phone in hand, it seems like anyone can easily become a certified handyman. However, Google how-to videos and articles fail to account for the skill gap that many ambitious DIYers face.

Home DIY projects gone wrong are becoming a serious health and safety issue in Australia. Sure, attempting your own DIY projects to save a few dollars might sound tempting, but are you really willing to put your safety and the safety of your family at risk? Cutting corners, time and materials could end up costing you more than just money.

Recent hospital statistics shows upwards of 25,000 DIY handymen are admitted each year, most with serious injuries. Professor Tim Driscoll, from the University of Sydney, who studies the epidemiology of work-related injuries and diseases found the most common injuries DIY’s face are falls from inadequately braced ladders, contact with fire and flames, and contact with electricity during maintenance. Other injuries reported were DIYers using power tools incorrectly.
