the fit and care of safety footwear
Feb 08, 2017

What should you know about the fit and care of safety footwear?


1.Try on new boots around midday. Feet normally swell during the day.

2.Walk in new footwear to ensure it is comfortable.

3.Boots should have ample toe room (toes should be about 12.5 mm from the front). Do not 

expect footwear to stretch with wear.

4.Make allowances for extra socks or special arch supports when buying boots. Try on your 

new boots with the supports or socks you usually wear at work. Check with the manufacturer 

if adding inserts affects your level of protection.

5.Boots should fit snugly around the heel and ankle when laced.

6.Lace up boots fully. High-cut boots provide support against ankle injury.


1.Use a protective coating to make footwear water-resistant.

2.Inspect footwear regularly for damage (e.g., cracks in soles, breaks in leather, or 

exposed toe caps).

3.Repair or replace worn or defective footwear.

4.Electric shock resistance of footwear is greatly reduced by wet conditions and with wear.

5.Footwear exposed to sole penetration or impact may not have visible signs of damage. 

6.Replacing footwear after an event is advisable.
