It is the consensus of many people that expired and spoilt food should not be purchased and eaten, and safety shoes, which are also used as gatekeepers for safety systems, also have an expiry date and expired safety shoes should be used with caution. Workplace safety footwear, also known as safety shoes, can effectively protect people’s feet from harm in hazardous working environments. At the same time, they have a shelf life. Wearing them for too long without replacing them, or not scrapping them in time when they suffer damage, will lay a great hidden danger to safety. Today, we will give you a brief introduction to the hazards of expired and damaged safety shoes to help you get rid of your worries.
At present, many enterprises are equipped with work boots for their employees as required, although it is understood that some enterprises, although providing labour shoes for their employees, do not care anymore after purchasing them once and do not replace them for a long time. But the fact is that sometimes, with the change of work and the continuous advancement of the work surface, the previously issued safety shoes may not be suitable for the new environment and cannot play a better protective role in the new environment, and some enterprises do not replace them accordingly; there is also a situation where the safety footwear are replaced, but the old ones can still be used and the two are used alternately. When using the old safety footwear, we need to check whether there are signs of damage, such as the protective performance of the damage should be promptly scrapped, if possible, the safety coefficient test can be carried out on the safety shoes, and those that do not pass the test should also be promptly scrapped.
