Nice BUTTS!

LET'S TALK ABOUT SITE GEAR

S3 E1_Banner_R&K Workwear

You know what we’d like? To walk around site looking fabulous, feeling comfortable and complying with PPE requirements at the same time. We don’t think that’s too much to ask and with loads of site visit experience up our workwear sleeves, we’ve got some hot tips for all you ladies out there.

This episode is all about site gear. It’s not always pretty, but it’s something that you need. We share some super practical tips for making sure you’re wearing the appropriate gear when heading out for site visits. There’s a bit of a debate going on about pants versus shorts and Rebeka and Kribashini share their personal preferences for what they think works best.

We also talk about the latest workwear from KingGee just for women and how we’re feeling pretty fine in our new gear. As much as Rebeka wishes that heels fit into the steel-capped boots category, we have to say work boots have come a long way and it’s possible to look good, feel good and be safe on site.
