Safety footwear?

No, it’s not a joke photo - this young bricklayer was actually found onsite working in these disreputable boots. Needless to say he was booted off the job and told not to come back till he had appropriate footwear and the rest of his personal protective equipment (PPE). Remember safety footwear should be:

- suitable for the work
- maintained in good condition
- soles not worn out, split or cracked
- protective caps not showing
- uppers not ripped or cut
- worn correctly
