Work shoes in versatile use
Especially in the food industry, employees often walk on oily or greasy floors. Since this cannot be avoided and the wrong footwear can quickly lead to accidents, work shoes with special soles must be used. This is identified by the designations SRA, SRB or SRC. But it is not only in the food industry that special demands are placed on professional shoes. For example, white lace-up shoes are also used in hospitals, nursing services, in the pharmaceutical industry or in the service and cleaning sectors. When working in special risk areas for the feet, such as in the warehouse or shipping, shoes with special safety features such as a steel toe cap or safety cap or with a slip-resistant sole must be worn.
Safety classes of work shoes
Anyone who is about to purchase new work shoes must also have the safety classes in mind and make the right choice for their own needs. The safety classes are subdivided according to the injury potential of the activity to be performed. Here, models are required that have a closed shoe shape, a protective toe cap or a slip-resistant midsole. Working in the wet, rain or mud requires rainproof footwear. Rubber boots are a good choice here, for example, as they keep the feet dry for a long time even when damp or splashed with water and are easy to clean again.
