I have an innovation that solves a MAJOR problem in my work industry.

In the UK alone, this crude innovation will help protect millions of construction workers from injury.

I speak from first-hand experience.

Essentially, the basis for the product already exists, I am simply innovating it.

An example: lace-less work boots.
Safety boots already exist, but how would one go about manufacturing safety boots without laces?
*this isn't my idea, just a similar analogy

For anyone who has invented or innovated a product. What was your process?

For example.
- should I seek to get a patent?
- do I seek for a manufacturer/distributor first?
- do I first create a protype and test it?
- what were the steps you hand to take from idea to launch?

Honestly, I wish this product was out there. I personally NEED it. If I don't do this I'm certain somebody else will in the future.

Thank you for your time :)

^^^ if you can make it yourself, even if it's crude
You're sure there's a need?
Do your colleagues bemoan it not existing?
During my first month on the construction job, 4 injuries occurred (myself included) that's would have been completely prevented with this product.

I'm shocked it's not being sold anywhere! Very similar to Sal Paolas idea of a paintbrush cover (it was on shark tank). Not creating something new, more like a simple innovation.

Did people complain about not having somewhere to put their brushes? Or were they simply unaware of the problem?

I will try any make it myself. Because it will actually help prevent injuries at work. I genuinely need it, I'm certain my colleagues will too.
