When it comes to working in dangerous environments, no one has to be more careful than those who work with or around electricity. One wrong move and they can sustain deadly injuries. This is why OSHA requires all electricians (among other professions) to wear safety footwear that is Electrical Hazard (EH) rated. EH rated footwear reduces the threat of electrocution by grounding electric charges. Engineers, warehouse workers, and wind turbine technicians (among other professions) are required by OSHA to wear Electro-static Dissipating (ESD) shoes and boots. ESD footwear allows electric currents to pass through the shoes or boots preventing electro static built up. In this post we will introduce you to our top ESD and EH boots sold at Coastalboot.com.
