Indian Navy to Bring New Ergonomic Workwear for Women on warships, Standardize all Uniforms


The Indian Navy is looking to introduce an ergonomic design of overalls for women serving on board warships, with the move coming on the back of their induction in the personnel below officer rank (PBOR) cadre for the first time, and their numbers poised to steadily grow in the coming years, officials aware of the development said last week. 

The navy has also decided to standardize the uniforms of all officers and sailors (men and women). 

The new fire-retardant overalls — the standard workwear for personnel serving on warships — will provide more comfort to women and address the physiological aspect of relieving themselves in a quick tempo environment, said an official who requested anonymity.
