What better day to discuss this topic than World Shoe Day? There are several factors to consider when choosing the most suitable foot restraint. The goal is to make sure your feet are comfortable, supported and protected.
In a recent article, we demonstrated that a pair of safety shoes for women is an effective PPE. However, the danger is not only a falling object or a forklift over a toe, but also discomfort due to improper fit and selection. Choosing the right safety shoes can prevent foot-related problems like bunions, corns, calluses, hammer toes, and even prevent leg, hip, and back discomfort.
Safety should be the primary consideration when choosing the right protective footwear. There are many options on the market, but you should choose a pair of shoes that will protect your feet from danger. A combination of safety toe caps, metatarsal protectors (to protect the top of the foot), steel soles (to prevent punctures), sole materials (slip, electrical insulation, flexibility and stiffness) and overall construction materials should be considered.
There are two points you should pay attention to
1.Fit is important!
Did you know that human feet actually grow during the day and shrink when you sleep? While that's not entirely true, everyone has slightly bigger feet after a hard day's work. This means the end of the day is the perfect time to try on new shoes or boots. Making sure your new shoes fit is key to preventing future discomfort. About one-third of adult men wear shoes that don't fit, so take the time to make sure you're choosing the right size.
2.Comfort is a must!
Most quality safety shoes and boots will not stretch or require a break-in period. Make sure your feet feel instantly comfortable when you test drive potential footwear. Comfort zones include adequate space in the toe box, no pinching or cramping in the ball or toe area, and adequate support for the arch and heel. Make sure the fillers and materials used are suitable for your work environment. Using shoes with humidity control technology is a good option in warm and cold climates, but can affect the fit of the shoe. When your feet are comfortable, your knees, hips, and lower back are better aligned and supported.
Note that no footwear can provide protection against all injuries. Hazards must be controlled primarily through elimination, engineering controls, and administrative controls.
Relying on personal protective equipment alone is not acceptable. However, by choosing the right shoes from Kameymall for your work environment and personal needs, you will have the best personal protection against foot-related injuries when other controls fail.
