4 Common Mistakes while Choosing your Safety Shoes!

by John Smith Digital Marketing Expert
Certain industries like Construction & Civil, Automobile and Ancillary, Manufacturing, Iron & Steel, etcetera are filled with unpredictable hazards. These are the kind of hazards which can only be avoided if the managers and the supervisors of the work sites take required measures. In other words, personal protective equipment in India is necessary as a measure to avoid any immediate injuries.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) can be for different parts of the body like hands, feet, shoulders, body, head and so on. Nowadays, the use of machinery requires a good quality of peas the feet are exposed to many hazards like spills, shock, vibrations, heat, falling objects etc. So, the corporates need to make sure that the safety shoes of a certain quality and resistance should work. Instead, they tend to commit mistakes which are pretty common among while buying the equipment. We have highlighted some of the mistakes that are quite general:

  1. Buying cheap safety shoes: The contractors most commonly purchase high ankle safety shoes and lightweight safety shoes. The most usual mistake that happens is the corporates get attracted to a lot of cheap footwear manufactured out there in the market. While purchasing shoes, budget is the most important factor that should be taken into account. Otherwise, the declining durability and features of the product is indicative of you buying another one very soon. If you have a habit of buying cheap things regularly, you will become habitual of it in case of other important things too. This tends to waste your money and the agenda of safety is also not met.
  2. Selecting the wrong size: Another mistake that most contractors or the managers make is choosing the wrong size of the shoes for their workers. A shoe that doesn’t fit properly, is loose or tight, disrupts the normal foot movement and is uncomfortable. This is caused when the shoes are ordered online and there’s confusion while selecting the sizes as they cannot physically try when they order it. It doubles the effort of returning the products which might cost extra for shipping.
  3. Giving style the topmost priority: Nowadays we have a fashion statement to compliment our personality. But when it comes to personal protective equipment, style should be the last on your priority list. It is because eye catchy products need not have all the features. The buyers overlook the factors that are essential when they see the style of the shoes. It is recommended that the safety shoes are meant for comfort and protection which is why we shan’t look for other fashionable features. If the buyer is focused on some main aspects, they can ignore the fashion statement of the shoes.

It’s important to learn from your mistakes. So, if these have been your 3 common mistakes then, start learning and implementing while making the second order for industrial safety shoes. To get the best item for proper use involved in a particular hazard, just order the right shoe of the right size and the quality price.
