The History Of Safety Shoes

Jun, 09, 2022

442 Browses

Before the 20th century, it was much cheaper to hire workers than to implement safety measures. With the rise of the Industrial Revolution, there was a massive increase in workers and companies who depended on these new measures to successfully perform their daily tasks. Many countries also introduce safety requirements.

Because of these safety standards, workers in the construction, transportation, manufacturing, and even food and retail industries must wear comfortable safety shoes every day. Currently, safety shoes come in a variety of styles, including safety shoes for women and men's steel toe shoes, compound toe work shoes and so on.

Why worry about workers’ feet

While foot injuries may not be the deadliest problem for work injuries, they are more common than you might think. Every year at least 60,000 feet are injured and prevented from going to work. That could cost the company more than $950 million. But if you measure the cost of these injuries by requiring your workers to wear some form of safety work boots, you can see that wearing safety shoes can save a lot of money.

Origin of safety shoes
After understanding why safety shoes are needed in any particular work environment, you may be curious about the origins of safety work boots. The first protective shoes the workers wore were called Sabots. The shoes were designed with a simple hollow wooden shoe that kept the feet of French and English farmers unharmed. Until the Industrial Revolution, workers started throwing shoes into machines during protests and production stopped. In the 1930s, as the government gradually addressed safety issues in the industrial workplace, the Red Wing Shoe Company began manufacturing steel-toed boots in Germany for workers and officers who did not serve during the war. After the war, security issues continued to be a priority. In the 1970s, the U.S. Congress passed the Occupational Safety and Health Act to ensure workers had safe and healthy working conditions.
