  • Opening Intro -

    Owning your own home and making improvements can be a lot of fun, and creates lots of opportunities to add value to your home and make your own impact on your spaces.


If you are looking to add the most value to your home when you are making renovations, or you are making your home improvements on a tight budget, you are probably going to do a lot of the hard work yourself.

This is not just a great way to save some money and maximize the value of your alterations; it also gives you an opportunity to learn and develop new skills. You will also, hopefully, be left with results that you can be proud of, and will enjoy living in.

Before you begin making any changes to your home, you need to consider safety. Whenever you plan work, you should take some time to assess risks and make sure personal protective equipment is included.

We have five top tips for you in this quick guide that will help you safely renovate your home.

Plan and Prepare for Safety

Planning and preparing for any renovation work is incredibly important, and necessary. But many people forget to plan for safety. You may buy a lot of equipment and supplies to get the job done, so why not buy some safety equipment too?

Think the job through, and assess the hazards you will face as you move through each stage of the work. Think about how you can avoid hazards by repositioning yourself or work materials to operate safely.

Know and Respect Your Limits

Some jobs should only be completed by a qualified contractor. There are lots of renovations that just about anyone can do, and do safely, but you should always rely on the professionals for big jobs, and jobs that involve water, natural gas, and electricity.

If you are renovating your business premises, or a home or apartment to lease to a tenant, then you need to hire a commercial electrician. Local government regulations normally dictate that all electrical work in a commercial property must be completed by a qualified and regulated contractor.

Have a Plan in Place for Emergencies

If something goes wrong, and someone is injured, it is important to know what to do. Emergencies can be very stressful, and the immediate actions you take can have a big impact on the outcome.

Have a plan in place, including where to go and what to do, for different types of emergencies. Have some first aid equipment nearby and know how to use it. Hopefully it won’t be needed, and your renovation will go off without a hitch, but it’s better to be safe than sorry.

Renovating a home, or any kind of property, can be a lot of fun and a great way to add extra value to a space. Nothing is more important than your safety, so make sure you plan ahead and have the right equipment, and that you know what to do in an emergency.
