Why “PPE: Foot Protection” Matters:

Foot-related injuries are more common than most people think—about 500 a day in U.S. workplaces.

The majority of those injuries occur when workers aren’t wearing the right foot protection.

The two major categories of work-related foot injuries are injuries from punctures, crushing, and lacerations; and injuries resulting from slips, trips, and falls, including sprains and broken bones.

A single foot injury can cost your company thousands of dollars in medical bills and lost work time.

Required by 29 CFR 1910.136.
