Knowledge and evolution of safety shoes
At present, more common protective shoes include safety shoes, insulating shoes, anti-static and conductive shoes, steel-making shoes and shoe cover, cold-proof shoes, the sole heat insulation that still suits road workers additionally, the sole reinforcement that suits construction workers, the sole of the worker that suits food, brewery is moistproof protective shoes. The function of protective shoes mainly aims at working environment and condition and set, have anti-skid, anti-piercing, anti-extrusion function generally, have specific function additionally, such as anti-conductive, anti-corrosion, etc.
If people do not wear safety helmets, they are likely to suffer serious injuries or even death in the event of an accidental injury to the head, but if they do not wear protective shoes, the injuries will be much less severe and rarely life-threatening. It is for this reason that proper wearing of protective shoes is often neglected by workers. according to the regulations, construction site workers must according to the work needs, wear toe protection shoes, to avoid hard objects crush, metal objects poked foot, etc. Lack of supervision is also a reason for poor foot protection. There is a lack of oversight over what shoes workers should wear and what protective features they should have. Although some enterprises have safety officers to check, but its strength is often not enough, or safety officers can not find workers' protective shoes are not qualified. Some workers think unit with work clothes and shoes for dressing, or is a kind of welfare, together with some of the labor protection articles is indeed has not adapt to the need of modern production, resulting in labor protection articles have not for a long time, especially for foot protection these seemingly has nothing to do with the life safety protective equipment. A person in charge of a protective equipment manufacturer said that they are not reluctant to sell products in the domestic market, but limited to domestic enterprises in labor protection equipment investment, the implementation of the relevant national laws and regulations is not strong enough. One problem that restricts the development of protective shoes in China is the cost of shoes. In the current context, the price accepted by enterprises to buy protective shoes is generally low, and the low price determines the cost of the product, which leads to the quality of cheap protective shoes can not pass the standard.
In fact, our country is in labor protection articles respect the step that draws close to international standard step by step had not stopped all the time. As early as 1988, the former National Technical Committee for Standardization of Labor Protection Articles carried out the study on the standard system of labor protection articles, but due to many changes in the organization, the standard revision of labor protection articles did not reach the expected goal. At present, China has formulated and promulgated a series of national standards and industrial standards in terms of labor protection articles, but some national standards are in the process of being formulated. Regard to the standard of ppe protection shoes, in December 2005, presided over by sinosteel wuhan security environmental protection research institute drafting (revised) of the four national standards through the examination and approval, the four standards is to the individual protective equipment - shoes test method of the individual protective equipment, safety shoes, "the individual protective equipment, protective shoes" and the "individual protective equipment - professional shoes", as an important labor protection articles of footwear, the nation's quality testing methods and specific quality standard requirements. The above four new standards of protective shoes have been submitted for approval in 2006, among which "personal protective equipment - testing methods of shoes" will be formally implemented in February 2008. Compared with the original standard, these four standards have changed a lot, mainly reflected in the original standard of the shoe function is relatively single, but as the workplace is increasingly complex, the requirement of protective shoes should have a variety of functions, the new standard has increased more functions for this. In the original standard, except the "general technical conditions for electrically insulated shoes", the rest of the standards will be replaced by the new standard.
