New workwear for female tradies
Bisley Workwear has just released an innovative new range of protective clothing and workwear, designed specifically for women. The range was created following Bisley's own research (The Bisley Workwear Tradies Report 2020) that revealed a lack of protective clothing options available for women.
Bisley Workwear consulted with five Australian female tradies who were able to consult on the real practicalities of women’s needs on the jobsite. One of these female tradies is Aimee Stanton. Aimee said: “It was brilliant to be involved in the design process; from being able to voice my frustrations with existing workwear options, right the way through to road-testing the range!
“One of my favourite features in the new range is the reinforced panelling - which provides additional support and stops the material wearing through. I also love the one piece coverall – it’s really comfortable and flattering, and it has a handy zip so that you don’t need to take the whole coverall off when you use the bathroom! I also generally feel safer on the worksite when I'm wearing clothes which I know have been designed specifically for women.”
According to Bisley's research, Aimee is not alone in the challenges she faced as most of the female tradies surveyed also reported experiencing difficulties when trying to find protective clothing or workwear.
