Safety Footwear

Protective safety footwear should be worn on site if there’s a danger that something could fall on their feet or someone could step on something hazardous, both of which are possible. Boots with steel toecaps and midsoles are the got to option, although there are a wide variety of styles such as Safety Shoes, Trainers, rigger boots and Wellingtons are also available.

Eye Protection
