General do it yourself safety comments Safety do's - Safety don'ts The home can be a highly dangerous area so every diy'er needs to take some precaution and, more importantly, use common sense. The following are some basic principles for the do it yourself person. Do's Always keep safely in mind before you do any diy activity, use caution, care, and good judgement - if in doubt, don't ! Always read the labels on cans containing paints, solvents, and other products; AND always follow the guidelines and any other warnings. Always read the manufacturer's instructions (especially the warnings) before using any tool, especially power tools with cutting blades/bits. Always pay deliberate attention to how a tool works, if you understand it's operation, you are less likely to cause injury. Always know and accept the limitations of your tools - use the appropriate tool for the task. Do not try to use a tool for anything it is not designed to do. Always remove the key from any drill chuck (hand or stand mounted) after you have removed/fitted a drill bit. Do not leave the key in the chuck even when the drill is switched off. Always wear the appropriate protection for the job in hand. This may involve gloves, facemasks (to filter dust etc.) and/or eye protection.
