Management Tip

Safety Rules

Foot protection means guarding your toes, ankles, and feet from injury. The feet have 26 bones and 38 joints for movement. They also have blood vessels, ligaments, muscles, and nerves, which is why it hurts when you stub your toe or drop something on your foot. Your feet are a critical part of your body that you use every day and, in some cases, enable you to do your job effectively. Protective footwear in the workplace is designed to protect the foot from physical hazards such as falling objects, stepping on sharp objects, heat and cold, wet and slippery surfaces, or exposure to corrosive chemicals.
