We work in heavy industry in remote environments and know that every woman needs a Shesfreetobe Toolkit in her life.
A female body is unique, women traditionally sit down to urinate, have a menstrual cycle, can carry children if they choose, are mothers and go through menopause.
Our workplaces were set up by men for men (fact) and as women's numbers are increasing, so is the realisation that our workplaces need to work for women.
This toolkit changes women's lives. It welcomes, acknowledges, considers and cares for the uniqueness of the female body. And as an employer, you have a duty of care to meet the health, safety and well being requirements of your females workforce.
Imagine starting a new role and quickly realising the comforts, such as modern bathrooms or even a tree to wee behind were non-existent or hard to access?
How does that make you feel? Perhaps like your needs at your workplace weren't considered? Maybe you blame yourself and feel silly that you hadn't thought the environment through? And then if you try to address it with HR or your Supervisor you feel embarrassed that you have to be 'difficult' and point out the obvious?
Or, picture this:
You start at your new heavy industry role and your Supervisor hands you your introduction pack, which includes a Shesfreetobe Toolkit.
Curious, you open it up and see a few items you haven't considered before, then pull out a sheet of paper that details the how to's from women who's been there, done that.
You hadn't even considered the need for these items as you were focused on landing this awesome role, but what a relief that you can just get on with your job and not have to have that super awkward conversation with your Supervisor or HR about your bodies needs.
If your Supervisor is a male, he has been spared from that awkward conversation too, he knows what in the Toolkit, it explains itself WHEW!!
