There are many jobs that require safety footwear. A lot of people may be worried about the damage that working in industries such as construction, greenkeeping or engineering will have on their feet. That’s why it’s important to choose the right safety footwear.
To help you do this, we have put together a quick guide to the best safety trainers and boots, so that you can make the right choice when it comes to purchasing footwear from The Workwear Centre @ Stiven.
Typically, working in an office is a pretty safe environment where you won’t need safety footwear. However there are occasions when they are required.
Stiven’s extensive range of steel and composite toe cap safety trainers or shoes will do a great job of protecting your feet on those occasions.
Working in construction can be damaging to your feet without the right protection, so even the best safety trainers won’t do.
Instead, you should choose a pair of safety boots that will protect the fragile bones in your feet. A sturdy boot with a good steel toe cap and steel midsole will go some way towards this.
Engineers and electricians may be fine with a steel toe cap, but most now require composite boots and a well-insulated sole.
Composite boots are as durable as steel and equally protective. This type of safety footwear is lightweight, which makes moving around much easier. Try the Himalayan 4103.
You can also purchase electro-static dissipative safety boots to disperse electrical currents safely. Try the Portwest FT62 safety trainers.
Having the right outdoor workwear is key. After all, working all hours in all weather conditions can be damaging to your feet without the right protection.
You should consider a pair of safety boots that will protect you against all the elements. Ideally something that is waterproof, breathable, lightweight and preferably with a high quality gel insole.
Try the Dewalt Challenger Safety Boot or Himalayan 4103.
The Workwear Centre @ Stiven stocks the best safety trainers, boots and footwear. There is a variety of styles from a number of leading brands to choose from. This includes Dewalt, Himalayan, Caterpillar, Ambler, Helly Hansen, Skechers and many more.
