NewsID:194    Datetime:2011-01-10

 

Rubber work boots are essential work staples for a wide variety of working conditions. Although it can help to substantially reduce foot injuries, protective footwear is no guarantee against injury. Workers can still suffer foot injuries while wearing safety shoes when a falling object hits an unprotected part of the shoe or boot. The responsibility for determining what foot protection is necessary and when it is necessary rests with the employer and with the hazard assessment of the workplace environment conducted by the employer.No one boots can safety and comfortable than Timberlands. The best pair in the world is that not using special business means, but as soon as people wear this one, will addicted in the comfortable feeling it bring to them.
 
From the swampy bayous of Louisiana, to the arctic fishing boats in Alaska, all the way over to the Carolina mines, rubber work boots make working in a variety of extreme conditions possible. These work boots not only make the worker more comfortable, they can also prevent serious injury. For this reason, it is important to put some thought into your rubber work boot investment. The following are some critical questions you should ask yourself when investing in quality rubber work boots.Static dissipative footwear provides protection to the wearer and limits the amount of electrical discharge that can flow to the ground through the sole of the shoe, yet still provides enough resistance to protect workers from electrical hazards. This type is commonly used in the electronics industry.
•Reinforced Steel Toe Certain work environments carry greater risk of foot injury. If you plan on using you work boots in an environment where there is a risk of heavy objects crushing your feet, steel toed rubber work boots provide an extra degree of protection from those hazards. Before you start looking, you should know whether you want standard rubber work boots, or the reinforced steel toe variety. In my opinion, when working with machines or rugged conditions, steel toe is almost always the way to go.
•Quality A qualitywork boot has proper water proofing, superior design and will last longer on the jobsite.
•Comfort You wear your work boots day-in and day-out, so comfort definitely matters. Look for technologies that support the foot, such as cushioned insoles and molding for superior fit.For waterproof or chemical-resistant footwear made with rubber or PVC materials, Stensrud recommends that boots be replaced immediately if there is any separation of the rubber or PVC parts, including the outsole, foxing (the piece of material that protects the joint between the outsole and the upper) or toe cover.
•Anti-Skid Soles If you are wearing rubber work boots, chances are your environment gets wet. In these conditions you need a boot with traction. Look for a boot that utilizes anti-slip and skid technologies on the boot sole.
•Durability Make sure the boot is suitably durable. Look for Injection molding which ensure a long boot life. If you require protection from corrosives and contaminants on the job, look for triple dipped work boots coated with neoprene.We're not pointing fingers or toes. The purpose of this article simply is to raise awareness of two important safety issues: knowing when workers should replace their safety footwear and knowing the best ways to care for safety footwear in order to extend its life as long as possible (see sidebar).
•Insulation Depending on your environmental conditions, you may have different insulation needs. For example, if you work in an Alakan fishery you'll need warmer work boots, but if you are working outside in teh Florida Everglades, a cooler, lighter-weight boot will work better.
