Safety Shoes You Need To Own

How many days has it been since your workplace’s last incident? Whatever the number, don’t leave it to chance by wearing ill-protected footwear. Depending on your occupation, you must adapt your footwear appropriately. For example, a career in manufacturing or machinery will require drastically different shoes than, say, a server or a warehouse supervisor. So before you read any further, ask yourself — are your feet properly outfitted? 

If you said no, first things first, and let’s talk about the risks of improper footwear. Typically speaking, there are two major categories of work-related foot damage. The first includes injuries from punctures, lacerations and crushing of the forefoot, again mainly happening in industrial careers. The second group includes slips, trips and falls due to a lack of tread. According to the National Floor Safety Institute, half of all workplace injuries are caused by floor contaminants. The second leading cause, responsible for 24% of injuries, is improper footwear. As a result, personal claim damages in 2006 exceeded a whopping $11 billion!

With those statistics in mind, Skechers Work brings you its line of ultra tough, durable shoes and boots. Designed in Skechers’s popular looks, the Skechers Work safety toe collection offers the latest in style, quality and comfort, and are tested to meet or exceed ASTM F2413-2011, I/75 C/75 standards for impact and compression safety.

Available in boots, sneakers, casuals and slip-ons for men and women, most safety toe styles are enhanced with Relaxed Fit® construction (a Skechers memory foam insole) and a roomier toe for instant, all-day comfort. Steel toe and lightweight options, such as alloy safety toe and non-metallic composite toe, are also available, as well as select styles offering electrical hazard and waterproof protection. 

Furthermore, in an effort to reduce on-the-job injuries everywhere, Skechers Work’s rubberized, slip-resistant outsole provides excellent traction and is OSHA compliant. In fact, many of its stylishly designed products have been sole tested with ASTM F1677-96 Mark II standards to meet or exceed a .45 coefficient, even on wet and oily surfaces.

So by the time your next shift begins, have piece of mind knowing your feet and body are protected with the Skechers Work collection. Check below for some of the latest and greatest styles available on
