Never try to fix electrical issues without the required qualifications

It’s best to leave electrical issues in the care of a trusted professional. You do not want to risk damage to appliances, starting a fire or hurting yourself.

Keep your work area clear to avoid tripping on tools

The last thing you want while fixing something is hurting yourself because you left tools lying around. Make sure you keep your workspace clear and tidy. This will also save you time when you need to find things as you work.

Wear protective gear if required

If you are working with loud tools over a long period of time, it may help to protect your ears. If you are planning on cutting through wood, you will need to wear protective gear for your eyes as well.

Store your tools properly

Make sure your tools don’t get entangled in the cords and clean them before you put them away. Secure sharp tools so that you don’t hurt yourself when you reach for them the next time.
