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 The traditional steel toe cap has been replaced by composite material such as high-tech plastics like Kevlar, which is five times stronger than steel and much, much lighter.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…
