Did you know that the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens in Cape Town are internationally acclaimed as one of the great botanical gardens of the world?

Safety boots manufacturing has seen a complete evolution from the unsightly black boots that were worn on construction sites to the highly upgraded designs available today. Besides an improved look and feel, they are also much more comfortable and custom made to suit particular roles. Take a read of this brief overview of the different types of safety shoes that are available on the market:

  • Safety-Toed Shoes

People working in factories and other industrial environments are all too aware of the hazards that can arise from moving heavy equipment around. Safety-toed shoes have a special reinforced section that creates a hardened cap around the toe section of shoes.

  • Steel Insole Shoes

Shoes with steel insoles are used to keep a person’s foot stabilised. If for example, a person has to push pedals on an industrial lifting equipment, the steel insole shoes can prevent the foot from shifting. This will help to avoid joint and bone problems that may arise from having your foot angled and pressured in certain positions.

  • Electric Hazard Shoes

Some safety shoes have been designed to reduce the risk of an electric shock. Electrical hazards can pose many risks on site. So, if workers are moving between wiring, electrical devices and other high voltage equipment, then electric hazard shoes should be worn.

Safety boots are a must regardless of the types of hazards in your work environment. They will reduce the risks involved and help your workers perform better. Contact Minuteman Press, a printing company in Cape Town that offers a wide range of branded Barron safety boots.
