PPE for Women: Join OHS Canada for the free virtual event

Research from the CSA Group found just six per cent of Canadian women say the personal protective equipment (PPE) they wear is designed for them.

That has led them to make troubling modifications, using things like duct tape, to get through the day. This compromises the safety of the workers, as the modifications may be making the PPE less effective.

Join OHS Canada on March 23, 2023, as we bring together experts to address the issue head on and discuss solutions to ensure all workers are getting the proper equipment they need to stay safe on the job. Thanks to our sponsors Avetta; OSG; Public Service Health & Safety Association; Levitt-Safety; and CSA Group for making this event possible. » Reserve your free spot today!
