It seems many of us are getting round to DIY projects at home during the enforced lockdown, it’s a great opportunity to get those jobs finished that you never seem to get the time for, but it might be having unintended consequences!
Records show there has already been a spike in the number of power tool-related injuries since lockdown was introduced.
Doctors are urging Brits to avoid gardening or DIY jobs around the house so we don’t take up precious resources that could be needed to fight the coronavirus.
Research by My Job Quote also found that DIY related incidents cost the NHS on average £222,322,225 in hospital visits every year.
So perhaps leave any ambitious projects to the professionals, if you must use tools follow safety advice and take extra care!
How are you surviving the lockdown?
