Unanticipated consequences of COVID-19 lockdowns: people getting seriously injured with home handywork

CareFlight has noticed a “dramatic” upswing in people falling from roofs. As people are restricted to home, they lose their jobs or they cannot get help, more of them are attempting unsafe home renovation work. Work safely!

“As more people are undertaking home projects that put them at risk, CareFlight urges individuals to take appropriate precautions when performing maintenance around the house.”
