Safety work boots

As the famous Nancy Sinatra once sang ‘ these boots are made for walking’ Safety boots are an essential accessory when it comes to protection in a work environment also known as steel toe safety boots. They are a type of protective footwear used in industries across the board. Before the times of this protective product workers wore wooden clogs and leather boots but these were not sufficient enough to keep them out of harm’s way and led to many work related injuries. The main reason safety shoes and boots were introduced were due the fact compensation legislation were enacted and large organisations started to introduce safety boots to lower their liability cost to their workforce. Many people assume the safety boot is just for people in the trade, however they are becoming much more popular and have become statutory requirements in many fields for example building surveying, employees going from an office out into the work area wear safety shoes. The safety boot now has many features to suit a lot of people it can come in a variety of ratings and these can also affect the price of a product.
