Be safe

Posted on October 01, 2014 by Suecos EN

Imagine a professional runner wearing ballerinas when training – that doesn’t seem right?

As you know, professionals need appropriate footwear, suited for their individual needs and working environment. It is essential for their health and safety at work; and of course staff efficiency. Just as the athlete needs professional running shoes in order to meet his target, staff needs adequate footwear to work effectively.

Socrates once said: "when your feet hurt, you hurt all over" which can impede work. Health problems can be avoided if employers and professionals are consciously aware of the risks and proactively choose safe and comfortable footwear. In the long run it will avoid health issues and therefore reduce sick leave.

Additionally following 7 actions should be taken to reduce feet and back problems and improve your staff’s health and productivity:

  1. Avoid fixed positions and increase the number of body motions. This can be done through job rotation.
  2. The floor can be crucial to reduce accidents and foot pain.
  3. Teach correct postures for dealing with heavy loads.
  4. Advise on adequate shoe maintenance.
  5. Add health signs in the workplace, for example to raise awareness of steps or slippery grounds.
  6. Ensure sufficient natural light.
  7. Flexibility and non-slip properties (both floor and appropriate footwear) reduce accidents at work.

Suecos®’ mission is to bring you the best of both: design and comfort. Our shoes protect staff´s feet from risks they are continuously exposed at daily level. We are aware of your needs such as toe protection and non-slip properties, just to name a few. We want you to feel energized, healthy and safe at work.
