The different risks that Safety Sneakers (รองเท้า ผ้าใบ เซฟตี้ which is the term in Thai) will protect will depend on the type of PPE and the materials in which the parts that make up the footwear are made. For example, it is correct to say that it consists of leather, midsole, and sole.
The upper part of the PPE is responsible for protecting the upper part of the worker’s foot. This specific part of the shoe can be leather, scrap, leather, synthetic, or even rubber.
On the other hand, the midsole has the purpose of absorbing the impacts caused by the user’s body weight. This is very important since the worker usually spends the whole day using the same PPE, carrying all his weight.
Thus, the midsole is generally made of Polyurethane (PU), a super resistant and comfortable material. The sole can also provide resistance against abrasion, slipping, drilling, and contact with toxic, chemical, and thermal substances.
Please choose the best among Safety Shoes, and it is essential to be aware of the types of material in which they are manufactured. This is because each material is more or less recommended for a specific professional activity.
Below are some of the risks that exist in the workplace and what are the most recommended materials for each of them.
When the worker works in construction, for example, he is often exposed to falling objects that can dent, cut or puncture his feet. In such cases, it is recommended to use shoes that have PU in their composition.
Thus, you will still be able to choose among the variations:
For activities that involve electrical risk, it is essential to pay attention if no part of the footwear has any metallic component. This is because the metal is an energy conductor and would put the worker in a risky situation.
In addition, for the footwear to be validated against the Electric Risk, it must have the test report for use in electrical installations. That done, look for shoes that have the following characteristics in their composition:
