Safety Trainers

Safety trainers offer a higher degree of flexibility than traditional safety shoes. In recent times, if you wanted to wear a safety trainer then your options were not only limited, but the trainers were bulky and uncomfortable to wear all day long. You will be pleased to hear that those days are now gone as there have been many advances in both the materials used and designs of this style of workwear.

Selecting safety trainers

Here are some areas to consider when selecting and buying safety trainers:

Level of protection needed

EN standards are the easiest and quickest way to make sure that your selected safety footwear meets the workwear standards you require such as EN ISO 20345, which specifies an impact resistance of 200 joules (20kg weight dropped 1020mm onto the toes), and a compression test of 15KN (1.5 tons resting on the toe area).

Summary of basic ratings:

  • SB - Safety basic, 200 joules Toe Protection, Oil Resistant outer sole. (Minimum Requirement)
  • SBP - As SB + Midsole for penetration resistance.
  • S1 - As SB + Antistatic properties and fully enclosed Energy Absorbing heel area.
  • S1P - As S1 + Midsole for penetration resistance.
  • S2 - As S1 + resistance to Water Penetration and absorption.
  • S3 - As S2 + Midsole for penetration resistance and cleated outsole
  • S4 - 200 joules Toe Protection. All rubber or polymer construction (waterproof). Anti-Static properties, Energy Absorbing heel area.
  • S5 - As S4 + Midsole for penetration resistance and cleated outsole.

Common features

The most common feature of safety trainers is a re-enforced toe. Re-enforced toes are available in either composite toe cap or steel toe cap. Composite toe caps are typically lighter in weight than steel.

The industry for safety footwear:

  • Agriculture
  • Catering
  • Construction
  • Healthcare
  • Laboratory/chemical handling
  • Warehouse

Other safety trainer features:

  • Fitment - Poorly fitted safety shoes can result in bunions, corns and other foot issues. Furthermore, if the footwear fails to fit correctly it may fail to provide the protection against an injury. Consider the following:
  • Upper - Ideally made from natural resources to allow the foot to breathe. Some safety trainers come with a coating to repel water
  • Insole - removable so the end user can customise
  • Heel - Ideally no higher than 4cm. If the safety trainer is worn for longer than 4 hours should be no higher then 2cm
  • Heel fit - Should fit snugly to stop the shoe slipping off when worn
  • Toe fitting - Toes should be able to wiggle freely. If the safety trainer also comes with either a composite or metal toe cap, toes shouldn't be able to touch the toe cap.
  • Sole - Strong and durable. Typically made out of materials such as rubber, polyurethane or PVCM
