August is Tradies National Health month and tradies are being urged to pay particular attention to musculoskeletal disorders, the most common injuries among tradespeople.

WorkCover Queensland said it’s a good time for tradies to keep a check on their safety, health and wellbeing.

Musculoskeletal disorders are injuries that occur to the bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments and soft tissues, manifesting as conditions such as muscle sprain and strain, back pain, abdominal hernia, soft tissue injuries, fracture and dislocation, tendinitis and carpal tunnel syndrome.

Musculoskeletal disorders can occur as a result of a sudden, singular event or over time.
