Summary/Abstract: The article presents explorative research of occupational segregation mechanisms in terms of gender on the labour market, on the example of three occupations: firefighters, parcel delivery couriers and bus drivers. The analysis enables to understand factors that enhance or weaken persistence of masculine patterns in workplaces and occupational groups. Its aim was to focus on social mechanisms of gendered segregation on the labour market, with regard to men experiences in masculinized occupations, in the context of changes in work and employment. The article offers conclusion in form of typology of three worlds of men’s work: occupational group that protects masculinity, occupational group that is exploited with use of masculinity and occupational group that is not attached to masculinity.
