Employee Safety

Health and safety in the workplace is important. Employee safety on the job site is enforced by OSHA (Occupational Health & Safety Act), which makes employers require their employees to abide by guidelines for safety purposes.

Before you roll your eyes and complain, remember your employer is just trying to keep your feet safe - and in certain occupations, it's required by law that you wear safety toe boots. As you're browsing Working Person's Store website for your latest work footwear requirements, think about why you need this type of coverage and when the heck people started wearing it.
