All working safety footwear ANA provides comfort without compromising protective value and is fit for purpose to ensure it is functional and feasible to include the below parameters:
A steel toe cap should cover the whole length of the toes from tips to beyond the natural bend of the foot. A soft pad covering the edge of the toecap increases comfort. If the toecap cuts into the foot, either the size or style of the footwear is incorrect.
Soles come in a variety of thicknesses and materials. They need to be chosen according to the hazards and type(s) of flooring in the workplace.
Uppers of protective footwear come in a variety of materials. Selection should take into account the hazards and individual characteristics of the worker’s foot.
A steel midsole that protects the foot against penetration by sharp objects should be flexible enough to allow the foot to bend.
No single type of non-slip footwear can prevent the wearer from slipping on every surface type.
