FOOT PROTECTION 

The average person takes approximately 18,000 steps daily and  there's the possibility of a foot injury with each step. 

Construction jobs can be hazardous to your feet--nail punctures are common--walking on uneven ground, over materials and tools,  or slipping on oil, grease, ice, snow, etc. can result in foot  injuries, or sprained ankles -- foot fatigue can develop from prolonged standing on ladders, walking on re-bar, stone, etc. 

Your job is no place for dress, casual, or tennis shoes -- your feet need the protection of a sturdy work shoe,  maintained in  good condition. 

Concrete, cement powder, or any other chemical entering your shoe or boot can damage the tender skin of the ankle and foot very  quickly.  Other foot injuries result from chemicals that soak  through the shoes causing skin irritation or serious injury. 

Construction work is often performed under wet or damp  conditions  --overshoes can help keep your feet dry, warm and protected from chemical contact. 

Be extremely cautious of your feet and toes when working around  heavy equipment, material stockpiles, and while placing or moving heavy loads. 

Most foot injuries are caused by objects falling or rolling onto  the foot -- safety shoes can reduce the injury from these types of  accidents and they are a must here at Williams Brothers Construction Company, Inc. for all workers.  In recent years safety shoe  construction has become stronger, lighter and more comfortable to  wear than ever before.

 PROMPT FIRST AID FOR MINOR INJURIES CAN PREVENT MAJOR COMPLICATIONS.
