Protecting the Feet of the Workforce

Acknowledging the amount of time that staff and operatives wear site safety boots the contractor has purchased ‘Footbeds’ which is a system for measuring individuals feet to check for pronation, gait and weight bearing or other foot disorders (similar to runners) leading to the manufacture of moulded insoles to insert in their boots and consequently reducing damage and increasing comfort.

On average, each Manager spends between 9 and 10 hours per day in their work boots and as such, a recent study by biomechanical researcher Terje Haugaa found that over 30% of people who wear safety shoes have one or more health-related foot problems.

In going forward with these custom orthotics they expect this will assist in the prevention of foot-related ill health, musculoskeletal disorders and slips, trips and falls.
