INDUSTRY UPDATE: Tradies National Health Month
August is Tradies National Health Month and as part of the awareness activities taking place, the Australian Physiotherapy Association (APA) is hosting a free breakfast on 1 August at the RSEA work wear outlet at Essendon Fields from 7.00 – 8.30am.
The breakfast will also include physiotherapy-led activities with prizes to raise awareness about the risks posed to those who work in trade occupations.
Australia’s trade industry continues to have some of the highest health and safety issues of any sector despite improvements and the APA wants to raise awareness about the impact time off work due to poor health and injury has on families, businesses and communities.
