Wound Care (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
Accidents happen and most people will sustain a wound regardless of how careful they might be.
It is important to remember that when using tools at home or at work, to make certain they are being used in the appropriate manner and the appropriate precautions are taken. Often accidents occur because the person was in a rush, took a shortcut, or was using a tool in a way it wasn't designed.
Protective gear is always appropriate. Wearing proper shoes or boots, wearing a bike helmet, or eye protection regardless of the situation, it is reasonable to prevent an injury.
