Australian Men's Shed Association
NPS MedicineWise works in partnership with Australian Men’s Shed Association (AMSA) to raise awareness about the potential risks of operating machinery when using medicines that carry a special cautionary label about drowsiness and dizziness.
AMSA is a registered health promotion charity. The sheds provide socialisation through meaningful work and, through that, opportunistic support to men who may have health problems. The organisation has over 500 member sheds reaching nearly 40,000 men.
One of AMSA’s priorities is to ensure the safety of its members when using machinery. NPS MedicineWise and AMSA have developed a poster to remind people about these specific medicines labels.
