Do-It-Yourself Project And Remodeling Project Safety Tips

Posted on Wednesday, 15th October 2014

As a growing number of homeowners choose to do a wide range of remodeling projects around the home, it is more important than ever before to understand the various safety tips associated with remodeling or do-it-yourself projects. While hiring an experienced and knowledgeable contractor is typically the best way to have a project accomplished on time and on budget and in the safest way possible, sometimes a do-it-yourself project is also a great option.

With that said, considering a few simple safety tips can go a long way in keeping homeowners and family members safe through all stages of a remodeling or do-it-yourself project.

1. Keep Emergency Numbers Nearby

For example, keeping emergency numbers handy and readily available near a telephone is a great way to have quick access to help if it is ever needed.

2. Safely Store Hazardous Materials

In addition, ensuring that children do not gain access to hazardous materials or toxic substances is one of the most important strategies in staying safe during a remodeling project or do-it-yourself project.

3. Have A First Aid Kit Ready

Equally important is to consider having a stocked and readily available first aid kit nearby at all times when doing a project around the home.

4. Read All Tool Directions

As an added note, reading the directions prior to using any tool or piece of power equipment is essential.

5. Read Paint And Chemical Labels

Also, reading labels on products such as paint stripper and other related chemical substances is important to ensuring the maximum level of safety at all times.

6. Never Use Gasoline Indoors Or As A Cleaner

Homeowners should remember that gasoline should never be used in an indoor environment. Along the same lines gasoline should never be used as a cleaner.

7. Follow Manufacturer Recommendations

Always use chemicals, tools and power equipment in a way as recommended by the manufacturer.

8. Wear Safety Gear

Wearing earplugs, a hard hat, a safety vest, earplugs and even goggles can also greatly increase overall levels of safety for homeowners.

9. Keep Work Area Clutter-Free

In addition, work areas should always be maintained free of clutter and kept clean.

10. Keep Power Tools In Good Condition

Power tools should be in good operational condition and should be repaired or replaced if they are damaged in any way.

11. Use A Heavy-Duty Extension Cord

When using an extension cord it is important to make certain that it is a heavy-duty type cord that it is intended for use with power tools and power equipment.
