Safety shoes vs. work shoes: what's the difference?
Safety footwear is mandatory in many trades and in laboratories. In an emergency, safety shoes and boots protect the feet from injury. Industrial safety footwear is a component of PPE (personal protective equipment) and is categorised by a number of safety levels.
On the other hand, work shoes haven’t been categorised by safety level. They have, however, been designed to provide comfort while at work, focusing on foot health and ergonomics. They are functional and often feature an attractive design.
Safety shoes and boots for different work areas
Safety footwear is mandatory for a wide variety of professions, including firefighters, electricians, and chefs. Appropriate safety shoes are available in a wide range of styles, colours, and designs to suit different needs, depending on the working environment. Whilst firefighters require flame-resistant safety footwear, electricians require EH-rated shoes, which offer electrical hazard protection.
How to choose the right safety shoes
Your choice of safety footwear depends on the basic safety requirements of your workplace. When making the decision, you’ll need to consider the activity performed in your workplace and what the appropriate safety level is for that work. The safety levels are specified using a combination of the letter 'S’, plus a letter/ number, and range from the lowest safety level (SB) to the highest (S5). Regardless of the level of protection, all safety shoes feature anti-slip soles and toe caps, which can withstand impacts of up to 200 joules.
