YOUR FEET ARE IRREPLACEABLE

Foot injuries can be paralyzing, resulting in difficulties in performing jobs or even everyday activities. Thus, wearing certified steel-toe protection footwear does not only save you from wasting money in emergency medical treatment but also ensures a debility-free future.

These following occupations should routinely consider protection footwear: shipping and receiving clerks, stock clerks, carpenters, electricians, machinists, mechanics and repairers, plumbers, assemblers, drywall installers, and lathers, packers, wrappers, craters, punch and stamping press operators, sawyers, welders, laborers, freight handlers, gardeners and groundskeepers, timber cutting and logging workers, stock handlers and warehouse laborers.

Occupations that need routine protection footwear

There are two major categories of work-related foot injuries. The first category includes foot injuries from punctures, crushing, sprains, and lacerations. They account for 10% of all reported disabling injuries. The second group of injuries includes those resulting from slips, trips, and falls. They account for 15 percent of all reported disabling injuries. Slips and falls do not always result in a foot injury, but lack of attention to foot safety plays an important role in their occurrence.
