A great deal of contractors are under pressure to ensure that all onsite staff wear metatarsal safety boots; S3 safety boots that, not only protect the wearer’s toes and midsole, but also the bones that connect the toes to the rest of the foot. The metatarsal bones are the delicate bones that run across the entire top of our feet.
As insurance and health and safety demands increase, a number of the UK’s leading construction and civil engineering companies now insist that contractors step-up their personal protective equipment (PPE) standards and insist on them wearing metatarsal safety boots as part of this.
With slip, trip and fall injuries accounting for 29% of non-fatal injuries and foot injuries accounting for some 12% of workplace injuries, it becomes very apparent why insisting workers wear suitable safety footwear is on the increase. In addition, because the metatarsal bones are so delicate and because injury to them is proven to be extremely debilitating, the increasing insistence on workers wearing metatarsal safety boots seems justified.
Rock Falls RF540 Monzonite S3 Metatarsal Safety Boots are billed as one of the ‘safest’ safety boots in Europe. As well as protective fibreglass toecap and composite anti-penetration flexi-midsole, the Monzonite features an internal metatarsal guard, protecting the entire foot. Add waterproof technology, SRC slip-resistance and a quick-release side-zip and there is little wonder why Rock Fall’s Monzonite is the first choice in metatarsal footwear across construction, civil engineering, rail, mining and offshore sectors.
