Earlier this month, CIOB, Construction Management and CIOB People launched #PPEthatfits – a campaign to address widespread inequalities in PPE provision across the construction industry.
#PPEthatfits calls for PPE that fits the wearer properly – regardless of their gender, culture, religion, size or shape – is safe and complies with health and safety regulations.
The initiative is encouraging people working in construction who have experienced inadequate PPE to share their experiences and ideas for change.
Here is a round-up of some of the comments that readers have shared to date on CM, CIOB People and social media.
Show your support for #PPEthatfits
We want to hear from CM readers about your experiences with PPE – whether it’s PPE that doesn’t fit properly or innovative manufacturers which are producing inclusive PPE.
