    Survivor guide: Renovating a house


    Completing a house renovation, whether it’s part of your work or your own private home, involves hard work and costs a lot of money.

    But it could cost you more money if you were to suffer a personal injury caused by slips, trips and falls during the house renovation, because it could prevent you from working any further and cause a significant loss in earnings.

    What can I do to reduce the risk of suffering personal injury from a slip, trip or fall when completing a house renovation?

    • Never climb a ladder without someone supervising you, especially if a floor appears uneven or unsteady. A fall from a ladder is a common cause of personal injury when completing house renovations.
    • Make sure you wear appropriate footwear and clothing, especially a hard hat to protect against loose objects that may be high up. Failure to be prepared with your work attire could result in serious personal injury.
    • Only use electrical tools if you have the necessary experience/license to do so, and have them professional tested by health and safety regulators. This will prevent the possibility of being electrocuted.

    How do I claim for a personal injury suffered when completing a house renovation?
