Tradies are always there when we need them, they’re clearing the leaves from our gutters, reconfiguring our internet cables and fixing burst water pipes. Tradies are vital to the economy and the smooth running of our day-to-day lives.
A tradie is also someone’s daughter or son, someone’s husband or wife, a child’s mother or father, so it’s vital that they are looked after, and Tradies National Health Month is all about shedding some much-needed light on tradies’ health.
3 in 5 serious workplace injuries involves a tradie even though they make up only a third of the workforce.
A tradies’ health is their bread and butter, without it the physical demands of the job would not be possible.
What can you do as a tradie to help celebrate Tradies National Health Month?
Prevention is always better than cure. UC Physio on the Gold Coast can perform an assessment and advise on good work practices. Our physiotherapists can also give you some simple warm up’s so that you can prepare for the day ahead. We can identify restrictions that when alleviated allow you to move better and reduce the risk of injury.
