Workplace adaptations

There are many ways a workplace can be adapted to be more suitable for menopausal women, some easy and some more challenging. Here are some examples:

Menopause friendly workwear

  • consider sweat-wicking/breathable materials
  • option of layers
  • avoiding tight clothing
  • extra uniforms to change into if needed

Cooling the work environment

  • fans – around neck, on desk, more general
  • ventilation
  • air-conditioning

Easy access to cold drinking water

Easy access to washrooms and toilets with more frequent breaks if needed

Easy access to a quiet area

Flexible working – start time, hours, location
