It’s that time of the year. The time of the year when you spend a lot of time working around your home — especially outdoors.
While this can bring you great pleasure and satisfaction, your safety and well-being should always come first.
What exactly does this mean? Here are a few examples:
• Taking breaks when working in the hot sun
• Getting help when you need it
• Learning how to lift properly
• Following all ladder safety guidelines
• Taking extra caution when using power tools
You get the point. A lot can go wrong when working around your home during the spring and summer months.
You could push yourself too hard when mowing the lawn, thus resulting in heatstroke or a bout of dehydration. Or perhaps you’re cleaning your gutters and lose your balance, resulting in a fall to the hard ground below.
Before you take on any project — big or small — consider the risks and the things you can do to mitigate them.
With safety on your mind at all times, it’s much easier to avoid an accident and injury that could change your life.
