Did you know this August is Tradies National Health Month?
Tradies National Health Month raises awareness of the health and injury risks affecting those who work in trade occupations-among tradies themselves, their families, employers and the wider community. With statistics showing almost 3 in 5 serious workplace injuries involve a tradie-despite making up only 35 per cent of the workforce-tradies’ health must be everyone’s priority.
As a physically demanding role, tradies need to take care in fuelling their body with the right foods for optimum performance on the job and at home. This Tradies National Health Month, we encourage you to consider the roles of food and nutrition, exercise, and mental health in the lives of tradies.
