Workers’ feet are vulnerable to many types of injuries on the job. For example, they can be crushed, punctured or doused with hazardous substances. And because many of the hazards that threaten workers’ feet can’t be eliminated or engineered away, the primary line of defence is safety footwear. Thus, the OHS laws require employers to ensure that workers wear footwear that’s adequate to protect their feet from hazards in the workplace.
How to Use This Tool
Use this checklist to assess whether hazards exist in the workplace that could endanger workers’ feet and, if so, whether those workers are adequately protected from the identified hazards by their footwear.
