In our continual effort to provide information to our customers, our blog article this month concerns the industry term Safety Toe. This term refers to the protective shell built into work shoes or boots that covers the toe area of the foot. This shell serves to prevent compression or falling objects from crushing the toes of the wearer. The safety toe can be made of composite material, such as a hard plastic, or metal, such as aluminum and steel.
The particular job and the dangers associated with the task should dictate the need for a safety toe, with the composite toe serving for moderate needs for protection and steel toes providing and advanced level of protection to the wearer.
