Why Safety Footwear Is Important In Work Place?
by zhuangwei peng on Jul 12, 2021
According to statistics gathered by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), there were an estimated 2.8 million private-sector workplace injuries reported in 2019. Workplace injuries cost employees time to recover, not to mention the impact on employees’ health, morale, and overall financial well-being.
Typical Workplace Hazards
Employees can encounter a number of hazards within the workplace. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, some of these hazards include:
- Puncture wounds
- Chainsaw wounds
BLS also found that there were around 60,000 foot injuries a year and that 75 percent of those cases involved workers not in compliance with current safety regulations.
Proper foot protection is imperative in minimizing the number of these kinds of injuries. In many industries, this means wearing proper footwear to ensure that feet are protected from common workplace hazards. While BLS reports that the overall number of workplace injuries is on the decline, workplace safety is of the utmost importance.
Due to the hazards present in many workplaces, USINE PRO recommends that employees who work in construction, logging, shipping, and similar industries wear footwear that provides the proper amount of protection against those hazards. Protective footwear should protect an employee's feet from rolling or falling objects, being pierced by objects, slipping on wet surfaces, as well as protecting their feet from electrical and other hazards.
