Thousands of Logistic Workers, Including Couriers & Postal Employees, Are Exposed to Health and Safety Risks
Couriers, postmen or postwomen are in contact with the public daily. This makes them at risk of sustaining a variety of injuries, including those that could happen if they slip, trip or fall. Ensuring they’re protected with the correct safety footwear is essential to avoid potentially serious injuries.
According to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), the overall rate of workplace injuries involving logistics workers in the UK was 0.65 per 100,000 workers in 2017/18. This equates to around 1,500 injuries in total.
