Data released by Monash University recently shows that 12 D-I-Y renovators a week are being injured and landing in hospital.
1900 Victorians went to hospital in just three years for DIY renovation injuries according to data from Monash University’s Victorian Injury Surveillance Unit.
Falls, cuts or piercings, and machinery seem to be the three most common causes for injuries among D-I-Y renovators.
Don’t let these figures put you off, simply exercise caution when undertaking more high risk activities such as climbing ladders or working with power tools.
At least you won’t have to worry about injuries when having your Freedom Screens fitted.
