Different Types of Safety Shoes for Different Job Roles

January 16, 2018 · Print This Article

In the past, ‘safety boots’ conjured up images of unsightly black boots that were worn on construction sites. Corporate clothing manufacturers have vastly upgraded the designs, look and feel of a number of safety shoes to make sure they’re not only more comfortable than ever before, but also much better looking. Here’s a brief overview of the different types of safety shoes that are available:

  • 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 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.

Regardless of the types of hazards in your work environment, you need to make sure that your workers are wearing the appropriate safety boots to help them perform their jobs safely.
