Presented by Anya Keefe, MSc. (Occupational Hygiene),
Occupational & Public Health Consultant
Nearly 50 years ago, researchers and worker advocates drew attention to the problems women have finding appropriately sized and sufficiently protective personal protective equipment (PPE). Despite this these early efforts – and evidence that poorly designed and poorly fitting PPE can potentially lead to serious injury or death – women continue to be differentially impacted by workplace hazards.
This session is aimed at gaining a better understanding of the extent to which physical differences are taken into account in the development of PPE and PPE standards for men and women.
