Safety footwear – additional information
Our feet are the furthest part of our bodies from our head, which means that they are far removed from our area of perception. For this reason, well-fitting safety footwear which is suited to the application area is essential in order to avoid possible injuries when walking around, kneeling or working at a machine. In particular, footwear must do much more than simply offer protection in areas where employees are on their feet for eight hours at a time. This is why we place a great deal of importance on comfort, attractive design and an exceptional fit.
