EmpowerHER Safety Webinar



Location:  Online Webinar

Ill-fitting personal protective equipment (PPE) for women has been an issue in the construction industry for decades. NAWIC Yorkshire recently found that 59.6% of employers do not provide women’s specific PPE, and with the number of women in the industry increasing every year, it’s a problem that we need to solve urgently.

In this Procure Partnerships Framework lunch & learn, join us and the NAWIC Yorkshire Campaign Manager, Katy Robinson, as we talk about the barriers to receiving women-specific PPE, the effects of ill-fitting PPE, and what we can all do to become more inclusive employers and better protect our female workforce.
