Being fit for work has nothing to do with how big our cannons are!

Series name: Keeping Healthy, Happy and Mobile

Guest: David Hall

Series Overview:
To find out more about this awesome initiative, I have asked David Hall and Cris Massis to join me in a short series, where we break down specific parts of the program to get a better insight into the program. Tradies National Health Month is put together by the Australian Physiotherapy Association and it’s designed to raise some awareness around issues relating to tradies health.

Part Two: Fit For Work
David Hall joins us in this episode of Toolbox Talks to talk about the factors behind being fit for work.
As a exercise physiotherapist, David has a lot of first hand, practical experience with tradies that experience various types of fitness related issue tied to the type of work they do.

Things like being taught how to lift correctly are some of the more obvious ones, however in this podcast, David dives deeper into some of the common issues that we often overlook.

Things like mental health, diet, obesity, inactivity, etc are all factors that one way, or another affect how fit for work an individual may be.

We also touch on some of the leadership battles that come into play with management and supervisors.

Head across to the Tradies National Health website and check out what they’re up to. It’s a fantastic program that’s calling for support, so get involved.
