The handyman business is a healthy profession – especially when compared to working a desk job. I personally feel much better when I’m working with my hands all day when compared to hunching over a keyboard.
But still, there are health risks that come with the territory.
Sure, there are obvious risks like cutting off a finger or losing an eye. But, there are other health risks that deserve equal attention to avoid.
Toxic chemicals, dust, and certain repetitive movements may not have an immediate effect on the way you feel, but they can significantly impact longevity.
Since I’m all about increasing my functional lifespan, I’m always on the hunt for ways to reduce these un-assuming risks. Not only is it better for my health, but it makes the job much more enjoyable when I know I’m not ruining my body.
