OSHA’s Alliance with NAWIC

 

The NAWIC, or National Association of Women in Construction began in 1955 to recognize those hard working ladies. With over 4,000 women in the organization, OSHA was bound to start focusing on the women in this career path.

If you were not aware, as of 2013, OSHA has an alliance with the NAWIC. They continue to work on this alliance to make the working conditions for women the best that they can be. This OSHA alliance had a five year pact to look at all different areas of work that women construction workers are exposed to. Including supplies, tools, sanitation and much more. They have now renewed this pact to further look into these working conditions.

They say they want women to be more involved in the rule making process and helping inform others of these rules. They want more women in the meeting rooms and to give input on their own working conditions and how they can be improved.

This is pretty cool and a step up to women equality. We have so many women working in construction and we need safety precautions too. Thank you OSHA for recognizing the NAWIC!

 

Let’s Get Motivated to Better Our Bodies 👟

 

 

Now, we are by no means a workout website or store but we are all for helping out the working women. If you’re anything like me you have a hard time getting motivated to get to the gym and exercise. Working a 40 hour week, all I want my weekends to be is relaxation because that is what my body is telling me I need. However, many studies show that working workouts into your schedule (even 30 minutes 3X per week) can make you healthier, happier and boost your motivation. That sounds wonderful to me. So what does it take to get to motivated TO GET motivated?! Well I have an idea. Let’s up that workout apparel in your closet. Below are listed some cute, stylish & extremely durable clothes that fit great for any workout whether you want to try kickboxing, yoga or even just walking in your neighborhood.

 

 

First things first. You absolutely NEED a great pair of shoes. If your feet hurt so does the rest of your body. Our number one pick is the Puma safety Celerity Shoes. We have read review after review about how great these shoes are. They are comfortable and breathable…two things you NEED in an athletic shoe.

Next, you need a comfy top that moves where you move. You can choose a tank top, a short sleeve shirt, a long sleeve shirt or a light jacket depending on what activity you plan to do.

 

 

 

Now that you have some cute shoes & clothing in your closet, you are more likely to get motivated. Keep us updated on your success!

DIY Sweater Mittens!

 

 

 

Running out of ideas for Christmas presents or running on a budget? This cute DIY mittens idea is perfect for any girl on your list. All you need is a sweater you no longer wear and some sewing skills!

 

 

 

What you need:

  • Sweater
  • Paper
  • Pen
  • Scissors
  • Needle & Thread

What to do:

  • First, place your hand on top of two pieces of computer paper how it would go into a mitten. (four fingers laying together and thumb slightly out to the side)

  • Second, trace your hand generously, leaving about a half inch extra space.
  • Third, cut out your tracing (this should give you two cut outs of your mitten from the two pieces of paper)
  • Fourth, lay the sweater out flat and place the tracings on the sweater side by side and cut out (you should get four cut outs, two from the front of the sweater and two from the back)

  • Fifth, sew two pieces together along the edges, leaving the bottom open for the hand to enter
  • Sixth, flip inside out so the pen marks and stitching are not showing!
  • Seventh (optional) add a layer of fur trim around the wrists!

 

Madison vs. Fusion

We’ve had a lot of question on whether the Madison or Fusion Boot would be better suited for particular customers. Therefore, we’d like to break them down side by side so you can decide yourself. Th main difference is that the Madison has a fur lining for colder weather. They are both our own brand, Safety Girl, and they are specially crafted with you in mind!

You won’t regret either pair of these boots because they are so comfortable!

Holiday Stress Tips

Image result for holiday madness

It is November 22 which means Thanksgiving is tomorrow and Christmas & New Years are around the corner. If you’re like me, you are super excited to see the new year but before we can get to that we have many stressors coming our way (along with the joy of the Holiday Season!). Maybe your in laws are coming to town, or it’s your first Thanksgiving hosting dinner, or it’s your baby’s first Christmas or you are having a New Year’s Eve Party! No matter what is coming at you this holiday season..we have some tips that are simple yet the most effective way to stay in your right state of mind.

  1. Exercise – We know you are on the move 27/7 in November & December so you are probably exercising just by gift shopping! If not, make sure to get on the tread mill or take an evening walk with a friend if you live in a warmer climate. It will help keep you motivated & you will feel less guilty about eating all that yummy turkey.
  2. Sleep – DO NOT get less than 7 hours of sleep! You will regret it for days. Your body absolutely needs this time to replenish and get you ready for the day ahead.
  3. Drink H2O – This is probably my #1 rule: HYDRATION. Don’t let this one slip either. Your body is made mostly of water so you need to counteract for that wine! Or sweating while shopping. I promise you will feel better the more water you drink. Your body will thank you.
  4. Treat Yourself – Just because you are spending time & money on family does not mean to forget about you. Get a comfy hoodie from the Safety Girl site, throw something in your cart for you on Black Friday without feeling guilty or simply cut out one night of your time for a self pampering spa night!

These are just a few tips and tricks to keep you feeling your best this Holiday season. We love this time of year but it can get stressful! Enjoy your family, good food & great friends instead of feeling drained & stressed!

DIY Cold Weather Car Emergency Kit 🚗

While the months get colder, something you need to think about is what you would do if your car broke down on a snowy, blistering cold day. It’s not necessarily a happy thought but it may save you one day! When I was just starting to drive, my mom made me pack my car with all the “essentials” and now I completely understand why. The following are a couple ideas to keep in mind if you find yourself driving in the winter time. Hopefully, if this unfortunate event does happen to you, you will be within walking distance from a store or have a phone to call for help. This leads me to my first precaution…

Always make sure your phone is fully charged before you leave the house

This is something most of us are pretty good about anyway because it is our main line of communication. If you find yourself stranded with a broken down car and your car battery is drained, you won’t be able to use your car phone charger, so keep that in mind.

Put together a cold weather emergency kit

You can purchase a tote at Target or Wal-Mart and pack all these essentials in it to keep them together in your trunk

  • Flashlight
  • Blanket
  • Gloves
  • Hat
  • Snack
  • Flares
  • Cat Litter (can be used in place of salt)
  • First Aid Kit
  • Jumper Cables
  • List of family phone numbers

Check out this roadside kit from Safety Girl that has 16 different car safety pieces including a flashlight, air compressor, help sign, jumper cables, cable ties, etc.

Image result for powerful women

As a woman, we are constantly juggling home, work and life in general. We do not believe we are better than men, we are just working to be equal. As most of us are aware, women are still not paid as well as men in a lot of different occupations. We’re not going to let that stop us from striving to change this statistic, though. If Beyonce above doesn’t motivate you, read the rainbow of facts below from the U.S. Dept. of Labor to give you some motivation to get that degree you always wanted or work for that promotion! SafetyGirl has your back!

New CarbonMAX JetStream Athletic Shoes

 

We have some new safety shoes on the site for your purchase and they are HOT RIGHT NOW. They are colorful, fun and extremely safe for any environment. The technology they entail is completely new to anything we currently have on the site. If we have to wear a safety shoe, we want to make them stylish!

The Safety Toe: The unique thing about these athletic shoes is that Wolverine invented a brand new Carbonmax Safety Toe. The point of these safety caps is that they are lightweight without sacrificing protection. The walls of the cap are thin, providing extra room for your toes. They are ASTM rated and will prevent your feet from falling object injury.

The Shoe: The entire shoe only weighs 10.5 oz! This is meant to take unnecessary strain off of your legs and feet when you’re wearing them for a long time. The shoe is made of a breathable mesh that is moisture-wicking and also provides ventilation for odor control. You’ll enjoy walking around on the memory foam foot bed. (think of those bathroom memory foam mats!) The nylon shank adds support to your foot to reduce injury.

The Outsole: The outsole of this shoe is rubber lug so it is extremely durable. It is also slip resistant on a variety of surfaces.

 

We have four different color options for you!

Multicolor, Hot Pink/Black, Aqua/Gray, or All Black
