When to Replace Industrial Workplace Footwear

When to Replace Industrial Workplace Footwear

• A leader in workplace footwear, Shoes for Crews provides solutions for individuals in a wide variety of industries. One of Shoes for Crews’s areas of expertise is outfitting individuals who work in industrial settings with quality footwear that can help keep them safe while on the job.

• Most people are well aware of the importance of wearing safety footwear while on the job. However, individuals should also evaluate their current safety footwear for continued effectiveness. Occasionally, workplace footwear needs to be replaced. There are a number of signs of wear to keep a look out for.

• Many workers wear steel-toe shoes while on the job to prevent toe injuries from heavy objects falling onto their feet. If a steel-toe shoe becomes dented, it’s a good idea to replace it. It might not provide the proper protection should an object impact the toe area of the shoe again. Additionally, shoes might contain metal guards that should be covered by an outer material. A guard that is exposed can be a potential safety hazard. Also, evaluate the thread on the bottom of the shoe. If it gets too worn down, risk of falling increases and replacement is recommended.
