Newswise: FSU Research: Male and female firefighters have different problems with protective suits

FSU Research: Male and female firefighters have different problems with protective suits

Florida State University

When female firefighters put on the protective suits they need for their work, they’re often using gear that has been designed for a male body.Because of that mismatch, the suits don’t fit as well as they should, and their mobility is impaired. Firefighters working in gear that restricts their movement must work harder to move around in a stressful and physically demanding environment, which puts them at greater risk of overexertion and heart attacks, the leading cause of on-duty deaths.

Mayo Clinic

لا تزال المساواة في الأجور بين الجنسين في مجال الطب بعيدة المنال. ولقد ثبت أن الفروق في الأجور القائمة على النوع مستمرة، حتى عند مراعاة الخبرة والإنتاجية الطبية والرتبة الأكاديمية وعوامل أخرى. تؤدي أوجه عدم المساواة هذه إلى انخفاض كبير في الأرباح مدى الحياة والإرهاق الوظيفي والمواقف السلبية تجاه العمل والآثار العكسية على المهنة والمجتمع.
