Safety hazards are a part of most workplaces. The major cause for workplace accidents is negligence in following work place safety. Specially designed footwear help prevent injuries at the work spot to a great extent.

They are lighter than steel toed shoes.   * '''Steel Insoles''': Steel insoles restrict the movement of toes and are helpful to individuals with joint problems.  * '''Metal Instep Guard''': They protect the feet from puncture injuries through a protective metal shield.  * '''Steel-Toed Boots''': The shoes have steel toe caps that are a common sight in heavy industries.   * '''Plastic Shoe Covers''': Plastic shoe covers on shoes are for reasons of hygiene and are used in hospitals and day cares * '''Anti slip shoes '''are required to prevent slipping. * For places where is ther a build-up of static electricity, static dissipative protective footwear can help dispel electricity.

Footwear for Workplace Safety Tips

* The internal surface of the work shoe must be in a straight line from the heel to the end of the big toe. * Consider using insoles where the job needs walking or standing on solid floors. * Women’s safety shoes are widely used by women in the workplace. * When choosing footwear, one should keep in mind that tight socks or stockings can spasm the toes as much as poorly-fitted shoes and also cause blisters. Safety socks are always preferred.
