Pink Safety Gear

Safety boots have been a hot topic of conversation around the office today. 

Marie said “Mine are pink”.

Call me naive, but I was amazed I had never heard of such a thing – but indeed her boots are pink and here is a picture to prove it. 

Some one else said “They’ll be doing pink hard helmets next” and indeed “they” do. Here is another picture to prove that.



And "they" do pink hi viz vests, pink arm bands, pink ear protectors and pink ear plugs.  As to the politics of pink safety gear I’ll leave that to others. I’ve just learned it exists and that was a surprise.
