What your employees wear to work is important. Sometimes specific clothing is required, and often they need adequate footwear for specific job functions and duties. If they are in the field — in a manufacturing or warehouse setting, or even in the office — their feet may need some sort of protection, and steel-toe boots are not always a necessity. That’s where safety trainers can be of value.
Safety Trainers — What Are They?
These shoes are a more casual, fashionable style of footwear. Safety trainers are designed for those who prefer not to wear steel-toe boots or those who don’t need quite that much protection for their feet. They are more relaxed and comfortable and look like everyday shoes but can still take an impact and protect an employee’s feet.
Coming in a variety of different styles and colors, and with different features, they give the option of buying what is specifically needed for your industry. Many shoes mix and match some of the different features, including:
- Puncture resistant
- Electrical hazard protection
Safety trainers may also come with a composite toe, steel toe, or aluminium toe to offer a variety of protection and a level of comfort when a person has a long day on their feet. As with all safety gear, these safety trainers must conform to government standards for protection.
Top Safety Trainers
The best safety trainers are ones that fit well and offer both comfort and protection while giving workers a stylish look for the job. Here are some of the top safety shoes we’ve found on the market today.
RS Pro Mens
These shoes are comfortable, flexible, and lightweight. And best of all, they look like street shoes while still offering solid protection to an employee’s toes. They are highly durable, extremely sturdy, and have good support — without the high-top style of a boot.
Earthworks Black and Blue Safety Shoe
This lightweight shoe is available in a variety of colors. It has a cushioned collar and is made from soft leather to give comfort, flexibility, and range of motion in any environment you encounter. A steel toe has been added discreetly for extra protection.
Amblers Unisex FS45
If an employee needs a shoe that is a bit more office-friendly, this may be the shoe they are looking for. Don’t let the dress shoe fool you, however. Highly durable with a steel toe and anti-penetration midsole, these smart-looking shoes offer plenty of protection.
CAT Striver S3 Men’s Shoe
CAT has always meant quality in the safety arena, and these shoes are no exception. With low ankles and a tennis shoe design, these safety shoes are comfortable and flexible yet offer all the benefits of a CAT steel toe boot.
Safety shoes will always be a must-have in some industries, but that doesn’t mean the gear has to be uncomfortable for the employees to wear. Safety trainers offer unique levels of protection for your workforce and still allow comfort and flexibility to get the job done.
