Tradie’s National Health Month 2019
The most valuable part of a tradie’s toolkit is their health and safety.
August is Tradies Health Month, and we’re calling on tradies to make their health – and the health of their co-workers – a priority. The construction industry is hazardous by nature and we need to be able to identify potential risks to help people stay safe at work.
Throughout August, Safe Work Australia shines a spotlight on tradies health and safety by publishing a collection of data, videos, resources and information. Statistics show almost 3 in 5 serious workplace injuries involve a tradie, despite only making up 30 per cent of the workforce.
Ultimately, we want everyone to go home to their family at the end of the day, free from harm.
