Health in Trades

When times are tough, there is help.

OzHelp’s Health in Trades Program Builds on Mental Health and Wellbeing Foundations 

OzHelp has had a long-standing commitment to delivering health and wellbeing services to Australia’s building and construction industry, and Health in Trades is a hard hat tip to the industry for which the Foundation was born to support.  

Backed by over 20 years of experience, in-depth industry knowledge extensive customer and client relationships and voice of lived experience, the Health in Trades program stream was developed to meet the continually evolving needs of the building and construction industry, supporting businesses and their people.

OzHelp is accredited under the Australian Government National Standards for Mental Health Services and several core initiatives to the Health in Trades program received accreditation under the Suicide Prevention Australia Accreditation Program in late 2022.  

Programs such as the Tradie Tune Up (onsite health checks), counselling and wellbeing support services and the Workplace Tune Up program evaluated against six national suicide prevention standards to ensure they are targeted, outcomes-based, and provide a consistent, high-quality and safe standard of care.
