PPE safety Boots

It’s easy to forget the safety of your feet when you’re working. But the risk of injury is all too real, especially in an industry like construction.


Safety shoes can protect against:


  • Injury from falling objects

  • Slips and falls

  • Extreme heat or cold

  • Punctures and piercing

  • Poor posture

  • Muscle strain

  • Impact


It’s common for companies to encourage workers to wear safety footwear whenever working – whether on-site or not – to keep risk of injury down. This also means time isn’t wasted changing shoes throughout the day.


The symbols indicate the level of protection a pair of safety shoes has:


  • FO - Resistance to oil and petrol

  • A - Anti-static

  • HI - Heat insulation

  • CI - Cold insulation

  • E - Energy absorption around the heel

  • WR - Whole shoes waterproof

  • WRU - Water resistance of upper

  • HRO - Heat resistance of upper

  • M - Metatarsal protection


Key features to look out for when choosing workwear safety shoes include:

Slip resistant soles

Look for codes (SRA, SRB and SRC) that shows the footwear has met the standard when tested under certain conditions.


Durable materials

Depending on the working conditions, you’ll need either breathable or Insulating materials for comfort.


Metal or non-metal toe protection

All safety footwear should protect the toes against a 200-joule impact.
