We’ve all heard about metatarsal safety boots: They’re S3 safety boots with the addition of metatarsal protection i.e. with internal guards that protect the delicate metatarsal bones. Here are Gorilla Safety’s four reasons to wear metatarsal safety boots?
So at number one, is safety of course. Most safety boots merely protect the toes, but falling objects, knocks and bangs can just as easily damage the delicate metatarsal bones that connect the toes to the medial, intermediate and lateral cuneiform bones, as well as the delicate tarsometatarsal joint.
Injuries to any of these areas can be extremely painful and debilitating, rendering workers incapable for quite some time.
More and more of the country’s leading construction and civil engineering companies are now insisting that their workers AND all contractors wear metatarsal protection safety boots.
So no metatarsal boots may well mean no contracts in some cases.
With the mounting insurances required for working on certain sites and for securing certain contracts, anything that helps lower premiums is of course a great help.
Of course, we all want to provide optimal protection for our workers, but we can of course capitalise on this at the same time through mentioning it within our marketing and thus, generating socially responsible messaging.
