Women’s safety at work deals not only with things that happen while women are at a factory but also, for example, with what happens with their family life, or in the time that they travel to and from work. In this short video, a manager explains the case of an employee that felt unsafe after leaving the factory.
This case illustrates that harassment doesn’t only happen when women are at the factory. Often, women are most vulnerable when they are travelling. But these women have no choice, they need the work and cannot afford to move.
In some cases, remediation for these issues can include setting in buses for the women to use, or allowing them to have shifts during daylight hours.
