Importance of Wearing Safety Shoe

Safety Boots are one of the most important elements of personal safety. Construction and industrial sites are hazardous workplaces, posing high risk of foot injuries.

Injuries may occur due to:

  • Objects like stones and sharp nails piercing through work shoes
  • Falling of heavy objects on the feet
  • Careless use of heavy duty construction equipment and vehicles
  • Sprains and fractures due to slips and falls
  • Electric shocks

To avoid and lower the severity of foot injuries, it is important to wear safety boots. Majority of the safety boots are fitted with features like impact protection and slip-resistant soles, safety toes, and adequate ankle padding. These features provide excellent foot protection to workers, allowing them to work efficiently around the site.

Safety footwear / Safety Shoe was a concept developed at the beginning of the 20th century as a response to the increased awareness in health and safety at work. During this time, laws on compensation and workers rights were also being enacted so it became a less expensive option for companies to prevent injury than to replace an injured worker - as was common practice prior to the new laws.

Foot injury can be debilitating and can be the difference between being able to work and not. Wearing safety shoes or boots can help prevent many injuries and not just to your feet.

Many of us work in an environment where it’s important to make sure we have suitable footwear. Safety shoes can make a massive difference when it comes to remaining injury free in the workplace.

Often referred to as steel toe cap boots or rigger boots, safety boots and shoes come in a variety of styles and fittings depending on your requirements and what the needs are within your role. If you’re someone that does a lot of work outdoors on a construction site for example, a pair of safety boots with a solid, substantial sole is probably the wisest option as they will provide you with the best protection against the elements as well as any hazards. On the flip side, a pair of safety boots may not be needed if you work in a kitchen, here safety shoes with a slip-resistant sole are likely to serve you better.

Not only have safety boots served a practical purpose, but they have also had their moments in fashion too, particularly in the skinhead and punk subcultures where an industrial/military look is the one to go for.

Here we’re going to take a look at what makes a safety shoe and why, as well as the different types available and what you should look out for when buying safety footwear.

how do safety shoes protect you
  1. Protect you from Falling Heavy Objects

When workers have to carry heavy objects or work in an environment where various people, machines, and vehicles are moving around at once, falling objects are common hazards. Wearing steel toe boots can effectively prevent serious injuries to your toes.


  1. Protect you from Punctures

When working in an environment where sharp objects are common, such as construction sites, wearing safety boots is essential. It can prevent your feet from being punctured if you happen to accidentally step on a sharp object, such as a nail. A soft-soled shoe offers absolutely no protection from punctures.

The function of safety shoes is to protect the feet from injuries. They are made of materials that are resistant to slipping, abrasion and puncture. They also have a toe cap that protects the toes from being crushed. There are different types of safety shoes that can be purchased depending on your needs.

  1. Protect you from cutting Hazards.

Workers who deal with machines that are sharp and have moving parts face serious cutting hazards. Those who work in the logging industry use chainsaws, which could cause catastrophic injury if it were to accidentally come in contact with someone’s foot. Logging boots, which are required by OSHA under standard 29 CFR 1910.266(d)(1)(v), are made with cut-resistant material in order to protect workers who use chainsaws. These type of boots are often waterproof or at least water repellant, and offer added ankle support.


  1. Protect you from Electrical Hazards

Workers who work with electricity cannot wear regular work boots. They have to be extra cautious in order to avoid electric shocks or the buildup of static electricity. In order to prevent electrical accidents, these workers have to wear non-conductive, or electrical hazard rated, work boots. Those type of boots are made from a combination of leather, rubber, and other materials that do not conduct electricity. Employees who work in environments where there may be a build-up of static must wear anti-static work boots.


  1. Prevents Trips, Slips, and Falls

Trips, slips, and falls can happen in any work environment. Some employers choose to install anti-slip floor tape in order to reduce the risk of workers slipping. Work boots equipped with slip resistant soles help prevent slip and fall accidents. Some work boots also have special treads and heels to help prevent falls from ladders.


  1. Prevents Fatigue

Workers who have to stand all day should wear appropriate footwear to prevent fatigue. Work boots that provide adequate cushioning and arch support can ensure workers are comfortable, alleviating strain on muscles. This will ensure employees are less fatigued and more alert, allowing them to do their jobs more safety. Wearing the proper work boots can also help prevent lower back pain caused by muscle strain.


  1. Prevents Burns

There are two types of burns a worker can suffer from in the workplace, those caused by fire and those caused by chemicals. Wearing the right work boots can help prevent these burns and will keep your feet safe while you work.


  1. Protect you from Extreme Weather

Workers who work in extremely cold conditions must wear the proper work boots or they may end up suffering from frost bite or hypothermia. Luckily there are insulated work boots that can help keep your feet warm even in the coldest weather. Some workers also have to deal with rain on a regular basis, which is why they should choose waterproof work boots.


Hopefully, after reading this post you’re now convinced that wearing proper work boots is important in order to avoid a hazard or injury.
