10 Best Manufacturing Shoes to Keep You Safe in 2019

If you work in manufacturing, you need to keep your feet safe. In fact, according to OSHA standards, companies must require their employees to wear protective footwear in dangerous environments.

What shoes or boots are best? That depends. Look for three basic safety features, as well as personal preferences and industry requirements.

  • Steel toe or Alloy Toe – A steel toe reinforcement protects the foot from falling objects. Alloy toes consist of lighter weight materials such as aluminum and titanium.
  • Electrical Hazard Protection – EH (Electrical Hazard)-rated footwear prevents the flow of electricity through the shoe and into the ground, thus reducing the likelihood of electrocution.
  • Slip Resistant – Slip-resistant footwear helps workers avoid painful and expensive slip and fall injuries in a variety of occupations.
