19 Aug Safety Footwear Company Gives the Boot to Common Foot Injuries
Staffordshire-based Gorilla Safety Footwear has launched an initiative to help prevent most types of common foot injuries sustained in engineering, mining, construction and civil engineering working environments by providing a comprehensive range of safety footwear that exceeds European safety standards.
Following news earlier in the year that a new European PPE directive has been circulated in draft form, the new directive will bring together retailers, distributors and manufacturers with the same responsibilities, meaning that they all have to ensure compliance and keep adequate records.
With a significant number of injuries received by workers in hazardous environments, injuries to the feet and toes and metatarsal bones are some of the most prevalent and yet largely avoidable with the implementation of adequate safety boots, safety shoes and safety trainers. A great deal of the focus will shift onto designers, manufacturers, distributors and vendors of safety footwear with the introduction of the new PPE directive.
Gorilla Safety Footwear only stocks safety footwear designed and manufactured by Rock Fall (UK) Ltd, a company that has established itself by introducing a number of â€˜world firstâ€™ safety footwear products that exceed European safety standards. An example is the companyâ€™s RocMet range of total protection work boots. The boots are totally non-metallic and feature, not only composite toe-cap and midsole protection, but also the worldâ€™s first internal composite metatarsal protection to exceed stringent European S3 safety standards.
Rock Fall has also released the worldâ€™s first range of ladies safety footwear which includes ladies safety boots, ladies safety shoes and ladies safety trainers, all of which were designed using a female â€˜lastâ€™ and result in a range of safety footwear that provides a better and ultimately safer fit to womenâ€™s foot shapes and sizes. The entire range either exceeds S1 or S3 European safety standards, providing wearers and employees with peace of mind that workers are taking the utmost precautions using quality PPE workwear products that exceed European legislation.
Gorilla Safety Footwear Director, Clive Astin commented; â€œGorilla Safety Footwear only sells safety footwear that exceeds European safety standards. The brand ethos is built solely around safety and we provide a safety work boot, safety shoe and safety trainer to suit literally every know hazardous working environment, from offshore, to construction and civil engineering, to mining and quarry, through to manufacturing, transport and warehousingâ€?. Mr Astin added; â€œOur website can be used effortlessly to search by industry, gender, footwear type and safety feature, so customers can be sure that they are selecting the very best item of safety footwear for the job in handâ€?.
