Are you aware that women in the workplace often face unique challenges when it comes to their health and well-being? It’s true! According to EU-OSHA (2023), women report less workplace accidents, but report higher levels of work related health issues.

From musculoskeletal issues to stress, there are factors that put women at a higher risk compared to their male counterparts. In recognition of International Women’s Day, I’m here to shed some light on this important topic and offer advice to help employers create a safer and more supportive environment for all employees. 

This episode was prompted, not only by International Women’s Day, but also by a report from August 2023 that has been sitting on my desk for months! It is from the British Occupational Hygiene Society and is titled “Uncovering the UK’s Hidden Crisis in Women’s Workplace Health” and I finally got around to reading recently and felt inspired to look a little deeper.
