Safety shoes: One piece of PPE with five safety benefits

by , 16 July 2014
If you've ever had a broken foot, you'll know you can't really do anything unless you can do it sitting down. This isn't such a problem for you in your office, but what about your employees who work on site? They don't get to work sitting down.

This is why safety shoes are a must! If your employees on site can't walk or stand, then they can't work. Luckily, safety shoes can prevent this from happening.

In fact, safety shoes are one piece of personal protective equipment (PPE) that has five important safety benefits...

*********** Hot off the press  ************
Do you want to be fined, jailed or have a criminal record for life?

If an accident occurs in your workplace, and the person dies, you could be charged with culpable homicide, charged penalties of R100 000 or 2 years in jail! The CEO or Owner of a company is personally accountable for health and safety at work.
*************************************

Safety shoes can help your employees keep a step ahead of accidents

 
When it comes to feet related injuries there are a few common ones, such as:
 
-          Crushed bones because a heavy object landed or rolled onto your employee's foot;
-          Sprains or twists because of slips and falls; and
-          Broken toes because your employee accidentally kicked a solid object.
 
All of these injuries could keep your employees on bed rest. Some for months, others for a few days. Either way, it's still productivity lost.
 
With the right safety gear though, these injuries are easily avoidable...
 

Safety shoes prevent injuries because of these five benefits

 
Safety shoes are a multi-purpose piece of protective clothing. They can protect your employees' feet in a number of ways and from a number of injuries because of these safety benefits:
 
1.       They give your employees' feet support while they're on them all day;
2.       Steel capped shoes create a hard barrier around your employees' feet that prevents heavy objects from crushing them;
3.       Good qualify safety shoes provide proper strong ankle support that can prevent sprains and twists;
4.       They help your employees grip the ground even when they're working on a slippery surface; and
5.       They give padding and protection against impacts that could break their toes.
 
These five safety benefits mean your employees will always be on their feet and ready to work.
