Nursing women working in the repair and maintenance profession may have limited space options to express milk. Flexible shared space with other staff or sharing space with a nearby business are possible solutions. Another option is to schedule use of the employee break room with a "do not disturb" sign on the door. Break time is usually easily arranged, and coverage is rarely needed. Nearby access to warm running water accommodates hand washing and cleaning of breast pump parts.
A storage area at a repair shop provides private space to express milk. The simple accommodations work well.
Signage on the door of a break room or another multipurpose room alerts other workers to respect the privacy of nursing mothers who are expressing milk.
Women working in repair or maintenance jobs may need sufficient break time to allow them to wash up before expressing milk.
