Tidy Tradie - Definition

Tradie - Definition

The name "Tradie" is used in Australia to describe the typical hard working, tradesman or tradeswoman.

For example, carpenters, plumbers or electricians are defined as "tradies".

Tony Gouverneur (The Tidy Tradie - Lock Carpenter) coined the phrase "Tidy Tradie" in Sydney, Australia, 21/08/2008. The definition of a "Tidy Tradie" is a tradesman or tradeswoman who uses a Tidy Tradie - Work Mat, to protect the work area from scratches, dents, burn marks & stains.


A Tidy Tradie also wears Work Boot Covers to protect the flooring from dirt and boot marks. A Tidy Tradie also cleans up after themselves with a vacuum or a dust pan and broom. When required, they use cleaning spray and rags to clean off their dirty finger marks etc. It is also suggested that when a very small amount of rubbish or mess is created, they should take it off site at no extra charge, instead of dumping it in the clients bins.


The phrase "Tidy Tradie" has become popular in Australia. This came about because in general, tradesmen have a bad reputation for making a mess and not cleaning up after themselves.


The new Tidy Tradie mindset has now entered the professional work force and I'm sure the clients/customers are more than happy!
