Tradies Health Month will take place in August, and all those working in the trades are urged to prioritise their health and safety.

Safe Work Australia will be using the month to raise awareness of the common risks that face those in the industry.

Resources and materials will be released throughout August, such as a new infographic with data and statistics on serious workers compensation claims made by tradies.
