Desiree Vreim

Operations Manager, Brasco Safety Inc.

Almost 7 years ago I took the leap of faith from a recruitment position and joined a safety supply company. I had little business experience and even less safety knowledge. Through mistakes, perseverance and googling every business question I was able to move in to an operations role with the organization.  Every day I get the opportunity to help someone go home safely to their family and throughout the years I have developed a passion for sourcing out PPE designed specifically for women.  Construction workers experience many health and safety concerns and those concerns have been well represented. Women workers face additional gender-specific hazards and a better understanding of trades women’s unique exposure to workplace hazards is needed.  Providing them proper fitting PPE is a great start.
