Protect your workers with quality safety shoes

Safety footwear is key to protecting and supporting your worker’s feet at work. 

As an employer, you are legally responsible for providing reliable safety shoes to your workers. So, the first thing you need to do before buying is to check the quality of the safety shoes.


Ensure the Quality of Safety Shoes before Purchasing

Quality safety shoes can be defined by the following criteria:

  1. Durability
  2. Adhere to Malaysian Standard (MS)
  3. Comfort

These criteria are some of the most important ones to indicate that the shoes can give maximum protection to your workers.

Therefore, look out for these criteria when checking for the quality of the safety shoes.

Durability

For a safety shoe to be considered high-quality, it must be durable. Durable safety shoes means that the shoes will able to withstand wear, pressure, or damage.

If the shoes you bought for your workers previously get worn out easily, it means that the shoes are poor in quality.

Adhere to Malaysian Standard (MS)

Aside from being durable, the safety shoes must also meet the Malaysian Standards for safety footwear.

The Malaysian Standards set for safety footwear is known as MS ISO 20345: 2008 which specifies the basic and additional safety footwear requirements.

Those requirements include:

Basic Requirements Additional Requirements
  • Impact resistance
  • Compression resistance
  • Flexing resistance
  • Abrasion resistance
  • Insulation against heat
  • Dimension
  • Corrosion resistance
  • Penetration resistance
  • Electrical resistance
  • Energy absorption
  • Leakproof

  • Compression
  • Upper/outsole bonding
  • Outsole
  • Additional requirement

Critical test

  • Impact

  • Upper/bonding strength

Due to the strict and rigid requirements, safety shoes bearing the MS ISO 20345: 2008 certification mark are considered to be of highest quality.

Comfort

Even if the safety shoe provides adequate protection but causes harm or discomfort to your workers, they will be reluctant to wear it.

So, choose safety shoes that are also comfortable. Depending on the work environment, you can provide your workers with lightweight safety shoes that are technically more comfortable than regular safety shoes while still giving maximum protection.

Additionally, you can improve worker comfort by providing insole inserts and high-quality work socks.
