Renovations: Series of 20 Common Costly Mistakes (4)

Fourth Mistake

4. IGNORING SAFETY REQUIREMENTS AT THE JOB SITE – I have personally been involved in many remodeling projects.  I can think of at least six incidents where something went wrong and someone was injured.  Luckily all but one were minor injuries but they could have been much worse.  The worse accident I witnessed was when a contractor I was working with on a commercial building cut off a large part of his finger.  The sight of the blood almost made me pass out!  I had to rush him to the hospital because our first aid kit was not going to be enough to handle this incident. However, I happy that I had a kit with supplies in it to at least handle some of the blood loss until I could get him to the hospital.  You need a first aid kit if you have anyone at your home doing any kind of renovation and it needs to be equipped to handle a number of injuries.  And don’t forget preventing accidents, make sure you have safety goggles on hand and gloves and boots – these are essential safety items incident.
