Reduce Slip & Falls Accidents

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.

Working in the logistics sector can be dangerous for a number of reasons

  • First, because staff are constantly on their feet, they need shoes that will provide good support and cushioning.
  • Second, because couriers, postmen, and postwomen are constantly walking and running, they need shoes that are comfortable and will not cause pain.
  • Lastly, because they are constantly exposed to the elements, you need shoes that will protect their feet from the cold, the wet, and the dirt.

The accelerated pace and continuous movements associated with the logistics, postal and courier sectors keep your employees at risk of slip and fall accidents. Hazardous work conditions further expose your team to life-threatening dangers and increase the likelihood that a slip-and-fall related accident or injury will occur.
