September 25, 2014 – Gateway Safety, an award-winning manufacturer of safety products for more than 70 years, announces the addition of two new safety glasses to its GirlzGear™ family of products, the company’s line specifically tailored to women in the workforce. Parallax safety eyewear, recently launched as part of the Temple Technology® group of products, is available in two different pink options: one with a pink temple flex and clear lens, and another with a pink mirror lens and a gray temple flex.
GirlzGear is a popular assembly of protective wear designed to help female workers who struggle with improperly fitting safety equipment – such as eyewear that slips off or pinches. In a June 2014 article, “Women and PPE: Finding the right fit,” Safety and Health magazine recently reconfirmed that personal protective equipment (PPE) often does not fit women properly or comfortably if it is generically sized.* Ill-fitting protective equipment can be a critical compliance concern, since PPE products are much more likely to be removed or not donned in the first place if the items are uncomfortable, inadequate, or just do not fit.
