Work boots aren’t worth anything unless they’re both safe and comfy. Safety shoes, which are typically developed for specific scenarios, are all about characteristics that are meant to keep feet secure in a range of locations while also providing a variety of comfort elements.

Safety shoes are defined as footwear with protective features to protect the wearer from injuries caused by accidents, equipped with toe caps, designed to protect against impact when tested at an energy level of at least 200 Joules and against compression when tested at a compression load of at least 15kN.

With Australians working longer hours than ever before, adequate clothing and safety shoes are required to protect the body from long-term harm. This is especially important for construction workers and blue-collar workers who are on their feet all day and may be exposed to the sun.

Choosing the proper safety shoes is just as important as choosing the proper work attire, as is ensuring that you slip-slop-slap to protect your skin from UV damage.
