An issue we need to address in the construction industry is why do tradies care more about their tools than their own health and safety?
According to a new study, trade workers are two times more likely to take care of their tools than their health, regardless of the high injury rate in the industry.
The research commissioned by the Australian Physiotherapy Association (APA) was released during Tradies National Health Month in August.
The study shows that almost 80 per cent of tradies take good care of their tools as compared to 47 per cent who take care of their health.
