A pair of safety shoes (also known as safety boots) is personal protective equipment (PPE) for foot protection at workplaces. It prevents from getting foot injuries due to slippery surface, heavy falling or rolling objects, sharp piercing edges, pinch points, rotary machinery, hot objects, loops of ropes under tension, splinters, electricity, chemicals or even bad weather etc. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires the employers to ensure that the employees use protective footwear while working in the areas where there are dangers of foot injuries.

How to Care for Your Work Boots

Workplace materials like chemicals, oils, and dust can have a detrimental effect on your work boots, which is why it is so important to clean them on a regular basis. Workplace conditions like heat, humidity, or cold can also damage your boots, so it's important to take them into account, too.

How to Clean Your Work Boots

To ensure your boots have a long life, clean them regularly.

Be thorough with your cleaning. Remove dirt and debris from the wrinkles and stitching. It's even a good idea to remove your laces periodically to clean, condition, and protect the leather tongue behind the laces.

How to Condition Your Leather Work Boots

Conditioning your work boots helps soften, protect, and restore the leather, ensuring a longer life.

Mink oil (or conditioners incorporating mink oil into their formulations) repels water and is one of the most common products used as a work boot conditioner. Mink oil helps prevent your leather boots from drying out and helps them retain their finish. The downside of mink oil is that it can be a little greasy at first and can give off a slight odor when wet.

  • Waterproof Leather: Use a leather conditioner formulated for leather boots or a mink oil paste
  • Oiled Leather: Use a leather conditioner formulated for leather boots, a mink oil paste, or a boot oil formulated for work boots
  • Dry-Tanned Leather: Use a leather conditioner formulated for leather boots, mink oil paste, paste wax, or boot polish
  • Nubuck or Suede Leather: Use a spray-on conditioner formulated for nubuck/suede boots - products containing mink oil, waxes, and the like are not a good option for suede work boots

How to Protect Your Work Boots

To protect your work boots, use a leather protector formulated for leather boots, or silicone. The one exception is work boots made of nubuck or suede leather. Those require leather protectors formulated specifically for that type of material.

Following are the examples of work environments where the safety shoes are mandatory:

  • Handling heavy objects or tools that might be dropped (impact resistant)
  • Handling pipes, tree trunks, stones, rolls, wheels or round shaped items that might roll over on feet
  • Handling hazardous material (HAZMAT)
  • Works involving sharp tools such as knife, axes, nails, scrap metals and glasses etc.
  • Working with live or dead electric cables
  • Working on a floor which might produce static electricity
