Share the load. Add a physio to your toolkit.
This August marks the APA’s tenth Tradies National Health Month, an awareness initiative that focuses on the importance of tradies health.
Based on research1, demonstrates that 60% of tradies often have aches and pains as a result of their job and, that a decrease in physical health can have a negative impact on mental health2.
So, throughout the month we are encouraging tradies to share the load by adding a physio to their toolkit. Our consumer website, choose.physio, is the campaign hub providing information on how physiotherapy can help tradies avoid small aches from becoming big problems...
We have also developed a series of digital assets that are easy for you to share across your own channels to support the health and wellbeing of our Australian tradies and help them stay on the tools.
