ESD Footwear: Keeping you Safe in Electrical Environments

timberland esd shoes

Static dissipative footwear (ESD) is designed to protect you against hazards, due to really low footwear resistance, while keeping a high enough level of resistance to reduce the possibility of electric shock. And to qualify, the footwear has to have a lower limit of electrical resistance of 106 ohms and an upper limit of 108 ohms.

Put simply, ESD work boots reduce the amount of static electricity that can build up in your body.  But unlike Electrical Hazard (EH) work boots, ESD boots can be either steel toed or soft.  They actually conduct static electricity through the linings, the insole, outsole, and into the ground.

And so you can be sure what you’re pulling onto your feet before you set out to work, ESD shoes or boots will have an “SD” clearly visible on the ASTM label sewn inside them.

But there are some pretty tight rules around modifying, or altering your ESD work boots too.  First, you can’t add your own insole to the shoe because unless it’s explicitly an ESD insole, static electricity can’t flow through it. Also as a guide to keeping safe, try to keep the floor and the bottom of your ESD work boots as clean and free from dust as possible, this means the static electricity can dissipate properly, flowing straight through the sole and into ground.

Everything You Need to Know about EH Footwear

s1008310ppmst-keeni_01

When you’re out on the job, your personal safety starts from the ground up. And footwear safety is vitally important: one wrong step can lead to injury, meaning lost time and an uncertain future. So finding the right protective footwear that’s not only comfortable, but also protects your well-being, is key to starting out your work day on the right foot.

You already know you need the right tool for the right job – and the same is true for your work boots. So when you’re working in a specific trade – in this case, working with and around electricity – extra special precautions need to be taken.

Electrical shock resistant (EH) footwear is made with non-conductive, electrical shock resistant soles and heels; the outsole gives you a secondary source of electric shock protection, against contact with live electrical circuits, conductors, parts, or tools. Continue Reading…

Take Proper Care of Your FR Clothing

FR clothing care

It’s obvious what flame-resistant clothes do to take care of you. You know, protect you from flames. But it’s not always obvious how you’re supposed to take care of your flame resistant clothing. How to wash it, dry it, and keep it in good condition. It’ll last much longer if it is properly cared for, and it will also retain its flame-resistant properties much better. So here’s some good instructions:

When it comes to laundering flame-resistant cotton clothing, ASTM F1449-01 has several recommendations. It’s important to realize that some laundering procedures can damage for FR clothes. Hard water and high temperatures that are used in industrial laundering and drying can cause minerals to build up on cotton fabrics and make them flammable. The harder the water, the more minerals build up, the more flammable your flame-resistant clothes become. But this can be prevented. Using soft water or an adequate soap can keep minerals from building up, and thus, keep your flame-resistant clothes flame-resistant. Continue Reading…

Lighter, More Comfortable Composite Toe Footwear

Composite Toe Boots

A long time ago, some person thought it would be nice if it stopped hurting when stuff hit your toes. That person was a genius because that person invented steel toe boots. All of the sudden, it became a lot less dangerous to do a lot more work. No more stubbed toes, no more worries about stuff falling on them, a whole lot of piece of mind. And back then, this protection came with one sacrifice to make: They were a little heavier.

That hunk of metal in your shoe offered great protection, but it did make for a boot that was a little clunkier and heavier. But that sacrifice isn’t necessary any longer. Welcome to the 21st century. Now, composite toe boots and shoes are available, offering the same great protection, without the added bulk. The traditional steel toe cap has been replaced by composite material such as high-tech plastics like Kevlar, which is five times stronger than steel and much, much lighter. Continue Reading…

Stay Safe in the Heat!

Heat safety

Summer’s coming, so we thought it was about the right time to share what we know about keeping cool at work, as the temperature rises. It’s all too easy to think that all you need to do is lather on the suntan lotion and you’re good to get out there, but it’s not always that simple.

Although a lot of jobs are outdoors and do require that you take plenty of precautions if you’re going to be exposed to the sun all day, a bigger danger present in most lines of work is heat stress. And that can happen outdoors, working on the construction sites, in maintenance, landscaping and agriculture, but it is an indoor problem too. If you work in commercial kitchens, laundries or factories, you need to take care this summer. Why? Well according to OSHA, thousands of workers fall ill with heat stress every year. And if its not taken seriously, it can even kill. Continue Reading…

Wear the Right Socks!

With the weather warming up, it’s time to get back outside and get  back to outside work. And on the days when the sun is beating down, you’ll feel it on your neck, and you’ll feel it on your feet. For those of us who work outdoors, we know that the sweatiest, smelliest part of the whole day comes right down to your socks. Which is why wearing the right work socks can make all the difference.

Whether they are made of cotton, acrylic, polyester, or anything else, the three biggest things we’re looking for are comfort, support, and durability. And these things can be accomplished in a number of different ways. For instance, when it’s warm out, the biggest thing that can help achieve comfort is a pair of socks that are designed to keep you cool. And since warm weather plus work tends to equal sweat, it’s important to have socks that keep you dry too. Moisture-wicking socks like Coolmax socks from brands like Wigwam and Thorlos are some of the most popular for accomplishing these goals. Continue Reading…
