Crocs @ Work Now at WorkingPerson.com

Crocs @ Work @ WorkingPersonOriginally developed as a spa shoe, it’s no surprise that Crocs have built their reputation on out-and-out comfort. Founded in 2002, they took their first design (‘The Beach’) to a Florida boat show and sold out all 200 shoes in a matter of hours. But it wasn’t until 2006 that they really caught the public’s imagination.

Since then the Crocs brand has gone from strength to strength, and divided public opinion equally, every comfortable step of the way. So while the fashionista’s turned their noses up, the public kept on buying. Partly because they were so easy to wear, but also being seen regularly on the feet of famous faces like Michelle Obama did the brand no harm either.

But far from ever courting the affections of the rich and famous, at the core of Crocs’ more recent marketing has Continue Reading…

Caterpillar Work Boots with Ergo Comfort System: Comfort Never Worked So Hard

Cat Boots Ergo Comfort System

Look, we know they’re not slippers. They’re not moccasins. They’re definitely not clogs. Your work boots are not the most comfortable piece of footwear you own. If they are, you owe yourself a new pair of morning slippers.

In fact, the comfort level of your work boots can be the biggest factor in how fatigued you feel at the end of the day.

How to Detect Flammable and Combustible Liquids

Detecting Flammable Liquid

It’s a question that baffles many. It’s also the most common question when training: Why is it that that I’m getting a combustible gas reading on my instrument now, when I didn’t earlier today? The answer is not as complicated as you might think. First of all, a there is a common misunderstanding about when combustible gasses can be detected.

It is important to understand that flammable and combustible liquids are two different things. As defined by the NFPA, a flammable liquid is defined as a liquid whose flashpoint does not exceed 100 degrees fareheit when tested by closed-cup test methods, while a combustible liquid is one whose flashpoint is 100 degrees farenheit or higher. These two differences can actually be further classified into six groups: Continue Reading…

Hearing Conservation: Military Practices To Improve Your Program

Hearing Conservation Programs

We all know military families make immense sacrifices for our country. What’s startling to find out is that, more and more, military members are sacrificing something we tend to take for granted: Their hearing.

Disability claims for hearing damage are on the rise in the military. In fact, hearing damage is the most common disability among military members returning from combat in the last 10 years. Military members wear protective footwear and clothing, so why is hearing protection so overlooked?

A common-sense hearing conservation program was needed. So the Department of Defense charged the Government Accountability Office to study this issue and report back on ways that hearing loss can be avoided. What they found can be used in your business to improve your own hearing conservation program. Continue Reading…

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…

Nautilus Safety Footwear: Don’t Get All Charged Up

ESD Safety Shoes By Nautilus Work Footwear

Have you ever thought about how much electricity the average human being carries around with them - in them – every single day? It’s shocking. (Pun intended!) In fact, you can accumulate as much as 12,000 volts just walking across a carpeted room. And we know you’re asking for it when you do this, but rubbing a balloon against your hair can generate as much as 20,000 volts. On average, the typical human being carries 25,000 volts of electricity with them at any given time. And passing it on to something else is easy. We do it all the time. It’s called static electricity, and it’s the “shock” you feel when you touch something. Sometimes we feel it – like when you touch a door knob or a sweater – but most of the time, we don’t. You have to have a buildup of 1,500 or more volts to feel a static electric charge when you touch something. But a charge with as little as five volts can cause damage to your home computer.
