Steel toe rubber boots and steel toe leather boots are two examples of highly versatile PPE, or Personal Protective Equipment. By using proper footwear along with other body protection, you can minimize the risk of debilitating injury on the job. Depending on the application, steel toe rubber boots may outperform leather boots, or leather boots may be more appropriate.

Steel toe rubber boots can be used effectively in environments where there is a higher risk of hazardous liquid spills or chemical splashes. In the event of a spill, natural rubber proves to be a durable material that is easy to clean, and will protect the skin from chemicals or other substances by acting as an impermeable barrier.

Leather boots are better suited for applications where a breathable fabric is more appropriate. Though leather may get saturated if exposed to liquids, it offers a flexible, more comfortable fit for dry applications. The steel toe on either kind of boot will help protect feet from falling objects or other physical dangers, as well.

Purchasing Steel Toe Rubber Boots

Boots, along with other forms of PPE such as hardhats, earplugs, and safety goggles, are available from industrial supplies and safety equipment shops. Online vendors also stock a wide variety of PPE, and usually offer services such as quantity discounts as well. They also may have a trained service staff available via phone or email to answer any technical product questions that you may have.
