On the job safety is everyones responsibility. Are you playing your part?

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.

Safety On The Job
David Hall joins us once again on this episode of Toolbox Talks to discuss ‘Safety On The Job’.
In the previous episode, David gave us a good overview into what it means to be fit for work, which leads perfectly into this episode, where we’re talking more specifically about safety.

Job safety is an ever present problem in any working environment, especially however in the trades. The use of machinery, dangerous tools and equipment, presents an additional element of danger. Not to mention the risks associated with the general environment that’s typical of places like construction sites, etc.

As a physio, David is frequently reminded of incidents that arise as a result of a lack of safety on the job. People lifting things they should be using equipment for, over reaching, joint stress, injuries from falls are all scenarios that could be either reduced, or eliminated from safe work practise.

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.

I have been listening to the pod casts for a few months now, I can't get enough of all the awesome content that you guys provide. Especially when you guys deliver it from a trade perspective which helps out a lot. Keep up the good work and hopefully one day I can afford one of the trade training trips.
