If you plan on doing some home renovations on your own, you may want to reconsider or exercise extreme caution. A recent study by Monash University reveals that a large number of D-I-Yers end up in hospital.
More than 1900 Victorians are ending up in hospital in just three years for DIY renovation injuries, the latest data from the Victorian Injury Surveillance Unit at Monash University found.
Most of the injuries occured amongst men and 61 per cent were for people over the age of 55.
Fractures accounted for 60 per cent of admissions but falls, cuts or piercings, and machinery were the greatest causes of injury.
