When should you wear safety shoes?
You should always wear safety shoes when carrying out any work in construction, the movement or operation of heavy objects, when working with sharp materials or walking on potentially slippery services. You should also wear safety shoes if working with extreme temperatures or hazardous chemicals.
What types of safety shoes are available?
Safety shoes come in many different styles, each designed to meet the needs of different types of workers in various industries. These include steel-toe boots, slip on shoes, safety trainers and more.
What are the best safety shoes for different activities?
Safety boots protect the wearer from potential foot injury caused by falling objects or shape edges, making them ideal for construction work of dealing with the heavy items and machinery. Meanwhile, safety trainers and slip-on safety shoes are ideal for those who need to protect their feet from slips, impacts and extreme temperatures while staying comfortable. Almost all safety shoes are ideal for working outdoors in wet or icy conditions, with slip-resistant soles which provide traction on slippery surfaces such as wet floors or uneven terrain.
What are the benefits of Vixen safety shoes?
When safety shoes are created with high-quality at the centre of their design, expertly created to offer the highest standard of safety without sacrificing on comfort. Featuring the highest-quality materials, they are protective and strong but offer a slender fit and stylish look.
What is the best way to care for safety shoes?
The first step in caring for safety shoes is cleaning them after each use. This includes wiping them down with a damp cloth or soft brush, followed by drying completely before storing away. Doing this will help remove any built-up dirt or debris that could cause wear and tear on the material over time.
What are the risks of not wearing safety shoes?
Failure to wear safety shoes can lead to foot injuries such as lacerations, puncture wounds, sprains and broken bones. Each of these injuries can be disabling and painful. Lacerations from sharp objects or machinery present a risk of infection if left untreated, while puncture wounds from nails or other sharp objects can cause swelling and inflammation that may require medical attention. Sprains and broken bones can take weeks or even months to heal fully and may require physical therapy for rehabilitation.
How do I select the right safety shoes for me?
When selecting the appropriate safety shoes, you'll need to consider the work you'll be carrying out and the level of protection that this requires. For example, steel-toe cap boots are ideal for construction work, while slip-resistant safety trainers aren't heavy duty enough for this sort of activity but are more appropriate for working on difficult or slippery terrain. It goes without saying that you should also seek a comfortable and secure fit.
