Safety is paramount, whether it be at work or at home.
My working life constantly revolves around saftey. It's drum into my brain constantly.
I'm not complaining though, it's a great thing for any work place to undertake and to recommend enforcing also at home.
I own a pair of Steel Blue that have been the most comfiest and useful tool. They have a sturdy inner plastic strong thing (technical term) that protects anything heavy that might be dropped upon my toes. I always use them in the garden.
That's right, I'm a real man.. Grrr! Stuff the shovels, I dig holes with me shoes! hahaha
Yeah, sort of. They have been ultra handy when I was landscaping with massive moss rocks. I'm always working at home with safety in mind.
I definitely understand the importance of safety. I also understand the importance of seeking help if accidents do occur.
Did you know that nearly one in five workplace injuries involves a Tradie? This makes the Tradies one of the most affected professions in Australia. They also don’t often seek appropriate medical attention, making injuries worse.
I've been approach by the folks at Tradies National Health Month that are aiming to change this, to make sure Tradies know how to be safe at work, how to reduce chances of injury and to get treatment if they do get injured.
Check out This video though by them. They managed to get Dave Hughes involved.
It's a cracker!
There's also a nifty little game that the kids might enjoy playing (or yourself!).
To help promote this important awareness raising initiative, the folks at Tradies Health Month are chucking in a prize pack giveaway. One lucky person will win a voucher for any pair of Steel Blue boots (valued at up to $400) and a Thermoskin voucher (to redeem either a Thermoskin Thermal Knee/Ankle Support or Elastic Back Stabiliser).
This is the biggest prize value I have given away at the blog I'm excited and you guys have been given such a treat!
As I was mentioning before, Steel Blue make some great boots and are worn by thousands of tradies across Australia. Thermoskin is well-known Australian producer of products that prevent, treat and rehabilitate sports injuries, arthritis and RSI.
Enter below for your chance to win, but don't forget to be safe whatever you are doing, but if you happen to get injured, seek help. Good luck!
