Today, I am sharing with you my 7 prevention tips for your safety, because accidents can happen at any time especially when you are trying to save money by doing work for yourself at home.

You can use these tips to prevent needless injuries that will change your plans and cost you more money than you are willing to part with.

As you know, repairing the roof, hauling debris, chopping broken tree limbs and weedwhacking the yard are typical examples of work to be done at home. For your safety, you should use protective body gear along with your clothes.Of course, you can decide which is suitable for the work you plan to do.

Below are some tips that can help.

  1. Wear a hard hat to protect your head. A blow to the head could literally kill you or cause permanent brain damage.
  2. Wear goggles to protect your precious eyes. An eye injury could cause damage to the eye which could make life uncomfortable, especially if you become blind.
  3. Wear a dust mask to protect your nose and mouth. Dust, molds, bacteria and chemical vapors in the lungs are very bad for you. They cause permanent lungs problems.
  4. Wear gloves to protect your hands. A hand injury would limit your ability to grasp and move objects in a normal way.
  5. Wear a broad belt to protect your back. Using a broad belt acts as a back support to keep your body aligned.
  6. Wear boots to protect your feet. The provides balance and upright support for the body. A foot injury would comprise balance and mobility.
  7. Wear a mounted harness to protect your body from falling down to the ground. When trimming trees and repairing the roof, a mounted climbing harness could prevent severe body injuries by preventing falls. Look out for my review on climbing harnesses.

Now, the choice is yours. Think about it. Is it not better to be safe than in a position to sustain injuries?

Realizing that you try to work for yourself to save money, common sense tells you that it is important to use protective measures as I suggested. Preparedness helps to prevent a lot of accidents. So, it would be to your benefit to make use of the 7 prevention tips for your safety.

I love the fact that you’ve created an article on this subject!
In the crazy life we live in, we often seem to forget to protect ourselves.
Accidents happen every day, all the time.
It won’t hurt to be as prepared as we can.
Thanks for having our backs!

Seven very sensible and important precautions. DIY is a great activity for your own personal accomplishments and to save money but not at the expense of your health and safety. It only takes one chip from a piece of wood in your eye for a personal disaster.

Thanks Maxine

Because DIY activities are increasing and accidents do happen, we need to provide more ways to reduce the probability of any type of accident occurring.Thank you for your comment, Tanya.


I appreciated your advice Maxine on these 7 safety tips. I had a farm for over 40 years and every day was busy cutting and dragging wood, fixing fences, and general upkeep on the property. I would often jump onto the semi-flat roof and clean out the gutters without a thought of falling. I was a bit young a silly but I never hurt myself. We would use a rope to jump down into the creek to check the water pump (that was normal). 

But now I’m almost 60 I think very carefully about my safety. I sold the farm and moved to the ocean but I have bought gloves, helmets, and goggles for when I do work in my garden and my husband uses them too. We no longer climb on ladders!

Sometimes it’s cheaper to pay a professional than pay medical bills. A timely reminder, thanks.
