Diversity and inclusion has been in focus for the energy industry for a long time. Increased efforts in creating welcoming, safe and inclusive working environments have seen the sector take massive strides in recent years, in a bid to attract and retain top tier talent.

However, recent reports that women do not have equal access to correct fitting PPE have prompted action from manufacturers, employers and employees alike.

It is the responsibility of employers to respond to these needs, to ensure the health and safety of their workforce. Having the correct PPE available is of primary importance in keeping employees safe, avoiding injury, and enabling them to carry out their jobs effectively.

Join our panel of experts who will debate the issue of D&I in the industry, shed light on the growing issues this presents for employers and employees and explore the products and initiatives that are in place today to solve this PPE problem.
