With the increasing the number of women working in shipbuilding, Seaspan has partnered with Helga Wear to develop work clothes specifically for the needs of women. Helga Wear has developed a coverall for the women of Seaspan that meets safety requirements, offers a fit proportioned for a woman’s body, has zippered legs to facilitate going to the washroom, as well as other features such as adjustable collar widths, elasticated waists, and knee pad pockets. Field-testing of the coveralls took place this summer at Seaspan’s Victoria Shipyard. Helga Wear will be providing Seaspan with three pairs of coveralls for each of the Shipyards’ women trade workers.
