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. OSHA was passed in 1970 to minimize workplace injuries. Workers are informed of rules to follow, told what protective workwear they need to wear to work, and trained to complete tasks properly and safely.

The winter weather can be brutal on your hands. Wind and snow don’t care how much work you have to get done. They can make your skin can become dry, chapped, and cracked, creating an uncomfortable situation for you. Winter work gloves are here to the rescue. We offer several designs at Working Person’s Store, including waterproof and insulated styles. Durable outer shells on some styles are created to have wind-resistance and waterproof qualities, which ensure the comfort of your hands.

While there are many features worth looking into, slip-resistance needs to be a priority in any work shoes and boots you choose to wear. Slipping: A Very Real Danger Although slipping may sound like a fairly mild accident - there are certainly worse ones [...]

No matter what kind of work you do, protecting your feet needs to be a priority. Otherwise, all it takes is one mistake - one accident - and you could be sidelined and unable to get the job done. Fortunately, work footwear has come a long way since the days when simply dropping the wrong tool could mean a broken bone. Focus is now placed on creating work boots that inspire confidence with every step you take, no matter what kind of surface you’re walking on at your job. The interiors of modern men's and women's footwear has also been given its due.
