Many professions require that their workers wear safety shoes, caps or equipment. That requirement helps avoid the risk of incidents and drastically reduces the incidents on site. Of course, the risk and hazards are not the same everywhere. While some work sites might pose the danger of dangerously slipping, others include handling heavy objects that may fall or roll and break the worker’s toes, other require protection from electrical hazards.

Many large shoe companies focus on producing footwear for different work environment and safety hazards. They mark the shoes with different symbols which indicate the type of protection and the level of protection the particular shoe offers.

MyBootprint decided to compile the most popular and important safety symbols in a handy infographic. Their hope is that it will help the workers pick the best shoes for his work environments without much hassle.
