Inclusive safety

Globus recognises that one size does not fit all and PPE needs to suit an increasingly diverse workforce. Safety is paramount and the correct fitting PPE is crucial to keeping workers safe, protected, and able to work at their best performance.

PPE designed for everyone

In order to be protective, PPE needs to be well-fitting, and comfortable whatever the size, shape, or gender of the wearer. If PPE is ill-fitting or too large, employees are less likely to wear it, impacting their safety.

With a high proportion of women working in the food, pharmaceutical and healthcare sectors, and an increasing number of females entering the construction and manufacturing sectors, female-designed PPE has never been more important to ensure optimum safety for all workers.

Globus continue to design innovative solutions across our product categories specifically for female wear.

Our latest innovation is the Riley Stream Evo Small safety glasses, specifically engineered for smaller and female face shapes. 

Stream Evo Small ensures inclusive, high-performance protection for all members of the workforce. Including a contoured narrower fit design to fit a female face shape and duo-spherical lens curvature so that eyelashes do not touch the lenses.

In addition to eyewear, we offer a range of PPE designed for women, including masks and gloves, in smaller sizes and helmets in adjustable sizes.
