Do you stand for a long time in a day at work? As we all know, standing is a natural human posture that does not cause special health hazards by itself. However, standing for too long during the work day can cause sore feet, swelling of the legs, low back pain, general muscular fatigue, stiffness in the neck and shoulders and some other health issues.

Whether you are working on an assembly line at a factory, working in a warehouse or in construction, taking care of your feet by wearing the right safety shoes for women is beneficial to both health and comfort.

Standing for a long time can cause discomfort, fatigue and swelling in the legs. The longer you spend on your feet, the more likely you will get pain in your feet, calves, shins, knees, thighs, hips and lower back.

Many workers will experience severe fatigue because they wear inappropriate shoes, which results in reduced productivity on the job. Moreover, pain and discomfort can also lead to distracted working, even causing injuries, such as slips, trips and falls.

Standing or walking for long periods of time usually accelerates health problems and soft tissue damage. Muscular strain or Musculoskeletal Disorders (referred to as MSD) can lead to injury, and definitely this is not the result you want.

 

Here are some tips for preventing standing-related strain or injury

First of all, you can do to prevent strain-related symptoms of standing on the job is getting a pair of shoes that is the right size, fit and with the right support features. Look for shoes with shock-absorbing footbeds and cushioned midsoles. The cushioning from the midsoles is actually what workers are standing on all day, which provides a comfort barrier between the hard surface you stand on and your feet. Wearing a pair of comfortable shoes will help reduce muscular fatigue in your legs and feet and your back. After getting the right work safety shoes, here are some additional tips that help you get through a long day of working on your feet.

 

Change your posture frequently

If possible, alternate between standing and sitting Add insoles to your safety shoes Ask for anti-fatigue matting in your work area Do these exercises before and after work.
