Managers are encouraged to be mindful of workers who may be experiencing symptoms of Menopause. Many symptoms can cause hazards in the workplace and may be putting workers at risk.
To assist women to keep comfortable and safe in their work environments it is important for women to be informed about menopause and the strategies to manage symptoms. Below are documents that may assist women and co-workers to understand this life experience; these resources can be printed and placed on notice boards or staff room tables.
