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!
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.

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:
- 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!
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! Either boot is great for work or play. The steel toe is great for working conditions whether you need protection from falling objects or slipping hazards. You won’t regret either pair of these boots because they are so comfortable!
