In a Letter of Interpretation dated February 23, 2011, OSHA addressed the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s (EEOC) concern on the use of skirts in a restaurant kitchen setting. Specifically, the EEOC asked whether wearing this type of apparel posed a safety hazard to workers.

According to OSHA, the degree of exposure to restaurant kitchen hazards depends on, among other factors, the work the employee is performing and the characteristics of the employee's clothing. OSHA does not have a specific standard or policy addressing the wearing of skirts — any type of skirt — in a restaurant kitchen setting; however, it does have Section 5(a)(l) of the 1970 Occupational Safety and Health Act, 29 U.S.C. §654(a)(1) (General Duty Clause).

Since the hazards employees may be exposed to in restaurant kitchen settings include sharp objects and hot surfaces and substances, the agency is recommending that kitchen staff, particularly those working in close proximity to these hazards, wear protective clothing such as long-sleeved cotton shirts and pants to protect from cuts and burns.

:( Skirits I wear skirits and my country is suppose to be freedom of religion but I had an interview at A&W and didnt get the job cause I wanted to wear a skirit! He was interested in me until I asked about being allowed to wear a skirit! Sometimes Skirits are the hardest things about being a pentecostal girl with a holyness dress! It's not easy right now but I'm trusting God that he will help me and after 8 months plus that isnt going easy!

Have a good day :)

I was on the train, on my way home, and I seen someone with a gym bag and I was thinking just how much I really need to find time to juggle my new work schedule, church, and being fit. Then my mind went to, how would it be to workout in a skirt? So I googled it! Lol. I came across this forum and now I've signed up for the site. It's almost 3 years that I've accepted Christ as my Lord and Savior but I more recently wear mostly skirts. Having this conviction made me think I wouldn't get as good of a workout as I would with wearing leggings to the gym but now reading all the responses change how I view working out in a skirt. I knew my pastor, best friend, and all other women from my church use skirts if they exercise but I just wasn't "feeling it" at first; I'm glad I'm more open to it now. I'll be trying it soon! God bless you all! emoticon

I work out in skirts! I usually work out at home using the wii, so I can wear pajama pants or yoga capris. When I go walking, I wear my skirts. I thought about trying to make skirts to work out in, I make jean skirts out of jeans, so why not lol!

The Exerskirt looks cool but I agree it's a little high priced.

Me and my teenage daughter work out in skirts. We wear wide bottomed skirts for most exercise and long stretchy skirts for ones that the wide skirt gets in the way or might get caught on something. There are a few exercises we can't do, but most people around us who don't wear skirts have been surprised at how much the two of us and our aunt can do in skirts and stay decent.

I don't sew and I would love for some one to make some nice exercise clothes in a skirt so that I could find them in the store! Wouldn't that be great...I would love to have a cute little skirt-jogging set!

I was nervous about joining a gym because of wearing skirts, but my friend talked me into it and I LOVE it! About 6 ladies from our church joined Planet Fitness, judge free zone. We wear spandex shorts or leggings underneath our skirts. Some of the weight machines I don't do, but I am amazed at what I CAN DO! Been going for a week now and am so happy I joined, despite my fears of working out in a skirt! You CAN keep your convictions and be healthy at the same time!

What are your experiences working out in a skirt?
