Should we have a safety shoes program? It’s a question safety managers consistently ponder. According to a report from the Bureau of Labor and Statistics “The Number of Non-Fatal Occupational and Illness Requiring Days Away from Work” the combination of foot and toe injuries in 2007 was 55,000 in private industry. These injuries are costly when you consider worker’s compensation, lost time, lost productivity and most importantly the pain and suffering that occur with a crippling or disabling work related injury.

The importance of safety shoes is not solely related to impact and compression, slip and fall injuries are among the leading causes of work place injury in the country. At the turn of the decade the National Safety Council indicated the average medical and indemnity cost $18,838. Health and safety managers have an important duty to determine what type of safety shoes are applicable to your work environment.

Traditionally finding all the different types of safety footwear needed for your environment was a difficult proposition. Work place safety has changed dramatically in the last decade alone. Companies can no longer afford to simply purchase steel toe shoes when there are other safety concerns to address. Through an online Safety Resource Center Lehigh Outfitters makes resources available to assist you in establishing solid safety footwear guidelines.

Additionally, we provide detailed specifications for all types of footwear including but not limited to- protective toe, slip resistant, electrical hazard, static dissipative, puncture resistant and metatarsal. With 41 different brand names and over a 1,500 styles with detailed specifications you will be able to find the right information on precise needs for your work environment. Join us to learn more about the importance of safety shoes in the 21st century and how your safety program should be designed specifically for your company needs!
