Statistics show almost 3 in 5 serious workplace injuries involve a tradie—despite making up only 30 per cent of the workforce—tradies’ health must be everyone’s priority.

69% of all tradies think that ongoing soreness is a “normal part of the job” so there is a tendency to ‘tough it out’ at work!

Tradies themselves are the “most important tool” – but not enough see it that way – with most inclined to take better care of their tools and work vehicle then their own health.

Physioworks Health Group Supporting Tradies to prevent Work Place Injury

August is Tradies National Health Month which aims to raise awareness of the health and injury risks affecting those who work in trade occupations—among tradies themselves, their families, employers and the wider community.

So if you are a tradie, and you have a niggle or ongoing soreness, speak with one the Physioworks Health Group physiotherapy team so we can assist you with your health, fitness and well-being to ensure you “stay on the tools” – and help prevent ongoing injury.

You don’t need a doctor’s referral to see a physio; just give a call and book in for a consultation at your most preferred Physioworks clinic location
