Help enforce your safe shoes policy. There is a reason that OSHA requires protective footwear in hazardous workplaces: "The employer shall ensure that each affected employee uses protective footwear when working in areas where there is a danger of foot injuries due to falling or rolling objects, or objects piercing the sole, and where such employee's feet are exposed to electrical hazards." [OSHA 1910.132].
• Use a No Open Toed Shoe sign at entrances and visitor registration areas. Signs provide a kindly reminder. Make it easier for everyone to enforce your open toed shoes rules.
