What is the difference between work boots and safety boots?
Work and safety boots both guarantee foot protection while on rugged job sites, however, they vary in the degree of protection that each provides to prevent foot injuries. How do you know which footwear is the best for your work environment?
Work boots are good to wear in hazardous job sites as they have general protective features to resist rigid conditions. They are constructed with safety toe caps to deflect the impact or compression caused by plunging objects, tools, or heavy machinery. Work boots are made with thick soles that have good traction, restraining the wearer from slipping on oily and sloppy surfaces. Most work boots have an ankle-high design, and some with insulating liners to give support and warmth to the workers' feet. This safety footwear is perfect to use in jobs requiring long hours of walking, standing, and lifting.
Safety boots have specialized features to protect workers from distinct hazards brought on by high-risk tasks found in construction sites, factories, mining locations, and industrial plants. Their upper body design uses hardwearing materials and reinforced protective toe caps to reduce impact from projectile objects and sharp object penetration. This footwear has fortified outsoles for puncture resistance and electrical insulation in some styles.
Discount Safety Gear combines the protective attributes of both of these types of footwear in one form, offering safety work boots for improved foot protection, comfort, and support, despite dangerous job situations.
Features of top safety boots and athletic-styled sneaker work shoes
Protective steel, composite, and other safety toe boots and shoes
Discount Safety Gear carries safety work boots with different safety toe caps suitable for diverse workplaces with varying levels of hazard exposure. The safety work boot brands featured in Discount Safety Gear's protective footwear portfolio include steel-, composite-, alloy-, and soft-toe cap boots to bring certain degrees of impact resistance depending on your assigned workplace. An array of safety steel-toe boots comprises the majority of our protective footwear line, ensuring maximum defense against falling and rolling objects on-site. These metal-toe caps are made of iron and carbon to ensure better impact resistance and fracture prevention for industrial, construction, warehouse, and other workplaces exposed to intense impact hazards. Alloy toe safety work boots offer nearly the same impact resistance but are lighter than those with steel toe caps.
Composite toe work boots are perfect for workspaces with metal detectors and other electrical hazards. Though their impact resistance is lower than steel toe-capped boots, comp-toes are best to prevent electric shock caused by accidental contact with unkept power lines. Composite toe caps are made of durable non-metal materials, such as carbon fiber, plastic, fiberglass, and Kevlar, making them a must-have safety footwear amongst engineers, electricians, and other people handling technical operations. If you are working with very few impact hazards, soft-toe work boots are enough to keep you safe and comfortable all day.
Waterproof and insulation properties for men and women
People working in wet environments need foot protection that not only deflects impact, compression, sharp objects, and slippery terrains but also protection from the wetter elements. Gearing up with waterproof and insulated safety work boots and shoes keep the feet dry and warm despite a rainy or stormy day on-site. The waterproof membrane shields the feet from liquid penetration while the insulated lining traps the body heat inside the footwear to sustain warmth. These safety features prevent skin irritation like blisters and hypothermia from spreading from the feet to other body parts. Having specialized safety footwear is essential for certain weather conditions. Make sure you have yours on the rack by shopping at Discount Safety Gear.
