For a construction worker, the most important safety equipment is probably “a good pair of working shoes”. This, in fact, is a necessity as he is on his feet for long hours of the day and even at night, and quite often in dangerous site conditions such as a manufacturing facility or a construction site.
Given below are some important considerations for employers in the construction industry while selecting the right pair of shoes for their workers:
The safety standards for shoes designed for Construction Workers should have a protected toe cap made of steel, composite material or aluminium. The shoes should be slip resistant, waterproof and comfortable.
The workplace of Construction Workers has the risk of fire, slippery surfaces and sharp objects. Therefore, the sole of the shoes should be heat, puncture, and slip resistant. A heat resistance sole will protect the feet from fire or excessive heat; puncture resistance will protect them from sharp falling objects, and slip resistance will enable the workers to walk with confidence on floors that may have become slippery with grease and oil spills, water etc.
The best shoes should meet the safety standards and requirements of durability and comfort. They should be lightweight and breathable to that the feet do not sweat excessively.
It is important to buy good quality shoes as they will be more durable and will not fall apart quickly in rough working conditions.
Most often, the cost of safety equipment will be covered by the employers as safety standards help in reducing insurance claims and other compensations. So, the Construction Workers can buy the best shoes as per their choice and get reimbursed by the employer.
