A majority of occupational injuries and illnesses are due to sprains, strains, tears, soreness, and pain. Data from the Workplace Injuries and Illnesses 2019 report shows that almost half of the reported injuries are of this nature. The same report shows that a significant number of these injuries happen to laborers, movers, truck drivers, and nursing assistants. This underscores the importance of wearing the right safety shoes at work in whatever industry you’re in.
The right shoes have the perfect balance between safety and comfort. Unfortunately, most protective footwear designs are lacking the latter. Meanwhile, those who can’t bear painful boots at work simply wear regular shoes that put them at risk.
SAFETY VS. COMFORT
Typical work shoes have thick and heavy soles with rigid uppers. Because they’re what’s usually worn, it’s common to hear the notion that the harder the boots, the better they’ll be at protecting one’s feet. Workers then withstand the uncomfortable footwear for their safety. However, this belief can be the root of some injuries. Thick and heavy shoes can cause blistering, corns, and bunions. When worn for long periods, they can cause muscle strains and sprains.
While hard to believe, it’s possible to have both safety and comfort in work shoes.
