An accident occurred on one of our customers sites recently, where a nail went through a safety boot and caused injury to an operative’s foot. We would like to remind you that all operatives must wear the correct foot protection when working on site. This must be Steel Toe Capped boots with a Steel mid sole.
Construction workers are expected to wear protective footwear whilst on site and doing heavy work. The bones in the foot are quite delicate and easily damaged and any muscle or tendon damage can prevent normal movement for several months. Steel toecaps protect against dropped objects. Midsole protection (steel plate) protects against puncture or penetration if they were to tread on a nail.
