Cut-Resistant Gloves: Technological Advancements Mean More Options

New Ideas On Cut Resistant Glove Technology

A lot can change in 15 years. A lot has changed in 15 years. Social media websites like Facebook and Twitter have become an everyday part of life for most Americans. The hybrid car has gone from design-floor dream to viable option for the average person. And cut protection for your hands has gone from one single option to many.

In 1997, para-aramid was the fiber for cut-protection gloves. This yellow fiber wasn’t just a valuable asset for workplace protection of your hands, it was the only valuable asset for workplace protection of your hands. But like social media sites and hybrid cars, times have changed. Now, even though para-aramid continues to be an industry leader, the alternative options have exploded. Continue Reading…

Back to American Made: Filson Wool Shirts

Wool Filson Shirts To Be Made In USA

You’re an American worker. So you know from first-hand experience: If there’s one thing American-made products are known for, it’s quality. Simply put, nobody makes things like we do in America. At a time when too many companies are shipping jobs overseas, Filson is bringing them back.

Iron Age Work Boots: No Longer a Thing of the Past

Iron Age Work Boots

Iron Age Work Boots Will Be Available In 2012

It was an exciting time. Optimistic, really. The worst war the world had ever seen had finally ended, the enemy defeated. More than four million American men returned home with goals and dreams and a drive to succeed. To build those dreams with sweat on their brow and determination in their hearts and work boots on their feet. It was 1918. And those work boots were Iron Age work boots.

Iron Age Boots was the very first branded “safety-toe” footwear. The first Iron Age Boots debuted in 1918, after the end of World War I. These brave American men had risked their lives on the battlefield, and they certainly weren’t about to risk a toe on the job site wearing a pair of soft toe work boots. So they turned to this new brand of work boots to keep them safe. They trusted Iron Age’s new “steel toe technology.” And several generations later, American men, and now women, are still trusting Iron Age Boots today. Continue Reading…

Rowe states, “CAT saw me on TV and took pity”. From that point on a partnership was developed. Continue Reading…

Why Wear Safety Footwear?

Safety Footwear

Protective, safety footwear is essential to ensure safe and healthy feet. Steel toe boots and shoes protect your feet, help prevent injuries to them, and reduce the severity of injuries that may occur in the workplace. According to the National Safety Council, only one out of four victims of job-related foot injury wear any type of safety shoes or boots. The remaining three are unaware of the benefits of protective footwear. Today’s safety footwear is comfortable, flexible, and stylish and provides necessary protection from injury. The foot is the most valuable part of your body subjected to injury in industry. Because of the many potential work hazards, it is important that you discuss with your supervisor the safety shoe, boot, or other protective equipment that you need for your protection.
