Depending on your line of work, you may even be required to wear safety-toe boots under the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) compliance standards. You need to find the best alloy toe, composite toe or steel toe work boots for the job at hand, and for your feet. That’s why our Timberland PRO® line is safety rated for impact and compression by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM).
All our safety toe work boots and shoes meet ASTM F2412-11/ASTM F2413-11 impact and compression safety standards. They meet impact I/75 standards and C/75 compression standards, meaning the toe boxes can withstand having 50 solid pounds of weight dropped on them from a height of 18 inches, and withstand 2,500 pounds of compression.
But beyond the common safety standards, each toe type has their differences. The right work boots should increase your level of comfort and provide support during long hours on your feet. (And if you don’t need safety-toe boots, we have plenty of soft toe work boots and shoes, too!)
