In general females are at greater risk than males of being injured, sexually assaulted, kidnapped, or killed. However, there are things that females can do to be safer while using these platforms, including:
- Never allow a handyman to enter your home if you are alone.
- Tell the platform you demand both a phone number and address of any handyman sent to your home.
- Make sure you have a written understanding that the platform has performed a honest background check of the handyman.
- Understand you have a right refuse to allow a Handyman into your home if you feel uncomfortable for any reason.
