DIY injuries

    Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

    Abstract

    ‘Do-it-yourself’ (DIY) refers to making, mending or maintaining something oneself, instead of hiring a professional or tradesperson. This fact sheet looks at DIY injuries that occurred as a result of falls (for example, from ladders and buildings), and while using tools and machinery (for example, hand tools and lawnmowers) at home. In 2013–14, men aged 65+ were the most commonly hospitalised group due to 1 of these types of DIY injuries.
