Why occupational shoes work better than sport shoes
Regardless of whether you are a nurse, mail carrier, hairdresser, office, or restaurant worker, you walk and stand much of the working day. So, your shoes are important to your overall well-being.
Too many people walk around in sneakers, flip flops, or high fashion shoes at work, without a thought about the strain their shoes cause on their muscles and joints. Many work absences due to feet and back pain can be avoided with the help of professional selected and certified shoes.
There are many reasons to leave your private shoes at home. They are not made to be worn eight hours a day — so they wear down quickly with daily use. They do not provide the stability needed to avoid injury. Their soles do not transfer moisture fast enough, which leads to sweaty feet and problems such as nail fungus and athlete's foot.
ESD protection for industries and hospitals

In industries with sensitive electronic equipment, workers should always wear ESD (electrostatic discharge) shoes — something many employers are just beginning to become aware of.
”A hospital, for example, has critical electronics,” says Juho Järvinen, product line director, shoes JALAS ®, Ejendals. “ESD shoes are designed to conduct static electricity away from your body. Otherwise, when your body has built-up a static charge and you touch a device, you could damage its electronics. In a hospital, this can have major consequences. But also, in many other work settings.”
