PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) For Women

11 Mar 2019

More women are working in industries such as construction, engineering and manufacturing work. As more women enter these traditionally male dominated fields the demand for PPE aimed at woman increases, the one size can fit all mentality does not apply and female employees should not have to “make do” with whatever is available to them at the time.

Wearing ill-fitting PPE will not protect the worker from any potential hazards, work gloves that are too big can slip off and hardhats that are too deep can lead to a greater risk in terms of falling off every time you look up. 

Thankfully, one size fits all doesn’t have to be the standard, with more and more companies offering PPE designed and sized for women. Below we’ve highlighted a few products you can purchase from us, along with some helpful tips to ensure women can find the best fitting PPE to do their job properly and comfortably.

Cofra Alice Ladies Safety Trainer 

The Cofra safety trainer is designed with women’s comfort in mind, with sizes ranging from a UK size 3 to a UK size 8. Even the tiniest feet can find a comfortable fit. This trainer is made from a water resistant nubuck leather and includes an aluminium toe cap, which are just as strong as steel but more lightweight. The added benefits of a TPU role makes this trainer a firm favourite for women in the workplace.

Ladies Welted Safety Boot Tan 


The welted safety boot comes in a stylish tan colour. This boot is ergonomically designed for the ladies’ workforce with contoured fitting, goodyear welt and shaped heel stiffener. The stylish tan leather upper and industrial strength metal eyelets make this an attractive option for women requiring foot protection. This boot ranges from a UK size 3 to a UK size 7.

Ladies Hi Vis Breathable Hiking Jacket 


This is a brilliant female version of the Exmoor Jacket; this garment offers all the same benefits plus a female fit and functionality (including a pretty pink trim!). Styled on a hiking jacket it offers premium features such as a wind skirt, hand warmer pockets, nelson pocket, and a two-way adjustable hood with a stiff visor for foul weather conditions.

HD Ladies Regular Workwear Trousers 

Our best-selling ladies trousers are the Condor trousers which feature internal kneepad pockets, two front and two rear pockets, a mobile phone pocket on the thigh and triple stitched main seams for excellent strength.

Scorpi Cut Level 5 Latex Gloves 

This is Scorpi's most popular cut 5 rated glove. With a 3/4 dip latex crinkle grip coating, this glove is superb for grip and protection against cuts and abrasions. This glove starts from a size 7/Small to a size 11/2-XLarge so we are certain you will find the right fit for you in this range.
