21 Aug Safety Boots Protective Properties Explained
Do you work in an environment that requires you to wear certain footwear that is deemed as appropriate for the workplace and any working activity, to prevent bodily harm or risk of injury? These can be known as steel toe cap boots, but are best known as safety boots. Safety boots are a style of footwear designed with protective properties to ensure that you get your job in hand done safely and successfully.
What Do Safety Boots Protect You From?
A sturdy pair of comfortable safety boots will be one of the best investments you can make to protect yourself while in the working environment. Safety boots can prevent you from the following:
- Falling / dropped objects
- Protection against sharp objects
- Prevent slipping
- Protection from burns
What Are The Protective Properties In Safety Boots?
Toe Caps –
Safety boots can be made with a variety of toe caps – not always steel. The strength and material of the toe cap can vary from the style of shoe and depending on what the purpose of the job is. The toe cap is put in place to protect the front of your foot from any damage if anything were to fall or get dropped.
Upper Materials And Insoles –
When the intention is to wear your safety boots all day while at work, it is rather important to consider a pair of safety boots that have breathable upper materials and insoles. Whether you are working in hot conditions, or your feet just get warm from being on them all day at work, breathable materials will ensure comfort and easy-wear from your safety boots.
The type of sole you have on your safety boots is incredibly important to prevent you from any accidents when working on surfaces that could end up getting wet, greasy or slippery. It also comes in helpful against uneven surfaces. All of our safety boots here at Grisport have grease resistant, heat-proof, anti-slip soles to ensure maximum safety at work.
Water Resistance –
When you are shopping for your perfect pair of safety boots an important factor to look for is whether they are water resistant. This aids wearing them in wet weather conditions, knowing your feet will stay dry and comfortable, and therefore the boots will not become slippery or dangerous, putting you at risk. A lot of our safety boots also come with a one hour water resistance guarantee.
