Are your feet at risk? Gone slip-sliding away? Have you had foot injuries? If something drops, do your toes cringe? If so, foot protection is needed. It could be safety toed footwear, with the crush-resistant toe made of steel or of a composite plastic that’s as strong as steel, but not as cold in winter. Or it could be non-slip footwear, for wet or slippery floors. Or insulated rubber boots, for those people tramping around in wet areas. If you think you might need special footwear but aren’t sure, call us, and we can go over the options with you.
How much does safety footwear cost? Where can you get it?
Cost: If safety footwear is required, the employer must pay a reasonable amount towards its purchase. Allotting $100 per person for a pair of safety toes is reasonable, and allows for many choices. You might want to set up a replacement policy, such as agreeing to contribute to the cost of new shoes every two years.
