PPE for women does not fit: Survey shows dangerous disregard for women’s safety

  • Friday April 19, 2024

Over six months in 2023-24 the Women’s Engineering Society (WES) undertook a substantial consultation of the female workforce in UK engineering surveying just under 1500 wearers of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). The results were analysed by Rocket Science, an independent research organisation and were published on Wednesday 17th April. The analysis shows that women are being ignored when it comes to providing safe and effective PPE, resulting in dangerous working practices for women and a lack of equality within the workplace.

WES intends to work to change these practices by measuring thousands of women to develop proper-fitting PPE and engaging with manufacturers and government to produce safe and effective PPE for all.

We call on all women who wear PPE to get involved at www.wes.org.uk/PPE
