Multiple studies have indicated that each year in excess of 60,000 foot injuries occur at a workplace. An alarming percentage of injuries were caused due to falling or rolling heavy objects that cause cuts, bruises, punctures, sprains, crushed toes and fractures. A significant percentage was injuries due to slips and falls caused due to slippery surfaces and inadequate footwear. And the remaining percentage was accounted for long term injuries such as flat feet, corns and calluses caused by extensive standing in the wrong footwear. Furthermore, on average the loss per work day due to a foot injury is approximately AED 35,000/-.
Some of the most common hazards to worker’s feet include, but not limited to, the following.
