What PPE issues do you face in your workplace? We want to help.
The AA recently released a survey to try to highlight areas where PPE and safetywear could be improved in the industry, especially for women. A study across all industries in 2017 showed that less than one third of women had PPE that fitted properly and fulfilled their purpose for safety in the workplace.

One of the key aims of the Women in Arboriculture group is to support women already in the industry. We are talking to suppliers about kit and PPE issues, so we are interested to hear from you about everything from chainsaw trousers to safety helmets, from gloves to work boots.

Anything about your PPE that affects your daily work life we want to hear about, so that we can start to make some positive changes.
