Hi-Vis Maternity Workwear – Is it Necessary?
It’s undeniable that women in the workplace are finally starting to get their voices heard when it comes to workplace inclusion. We now see workwear with more and more options of flattering, feminine pieces to choose from. However, when it comes to Hi-Vis Maternity Workwear, there appears to be an assumption that women either do not want to or simply cannot continue their duties once they become pregnant. Bizarrely the main reason that this is the case is due to only having the option to resort to dangerously oversized ill-fitting workwear which is simply unsuitable and unsafe!
When being able to wear the right protective workwear (or not) can determine a person’s suitability to do their job, it is bizarre that so many workwear brands have overlooked maternity wear for pregnant women who work in construction, aviation, road workers, rail, refuse collection…the list goes on.
Just like in every other place of work, women have the right to work through their pregnancy. However, the lack of workwear available for women who work in environments that legally require hi-vis clothing is taking that option away from women. So we think that yes it is absolutely necessary!
