Reno stars want tradies to focus a little more on one thing

RENOVATING television superstars Kyal and Kara Demmrich want tradespeople across regional Australia to look after the most important apparatus in their toolkits - their health.

The Super Ks are the faces of this year's Australian Physiotherapy Association-backed Tradies' Health Month, which starts on August 1.

Safe Work Australia data reveals tradies have the most serious injury and disease compensation claims in the country.

Most serious claims stem from injuries and musculoskeletal disorders, including traumatic joint/ligament and muscle/tendon injuries.

Back injuries make up the highest proportion of body stress injury claims, but injuries to upper limbs, lower legs, hips, the abdomen and the pelvic region are not far behind.

Research also shows tradespeople, labourers and workers in agriculture and construction have high risks of chronic health conditions.
