Care and maintenance guide for your uvex safety footwear

Once you’ve been provided footwear that’s suitable, fits perfectly and is comfortable, you then need to ensure the quality of the shoes is maintained. If footwear is not looked after, it will quickly become unsuitable and may cause or increase the chance of accidents. HSE advises that PPE must be properly looked after and stored when not in use. Before wearing, safety footwear should always be checked for faults, damage, wear and tear, and dirt. Follow our helpful tips to get the best out of your footwear:

Getting the most out your footwear

Upper: To keep your boots clean, brush or wash any dirt off. Check for warning signs that signal when footwear has reached retirement age, such as damaged toes, protective components showing, separation of the sole, worn tread, and cuts, cracks or punctures. Dry the footwear naturally and store in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.
Laces: Check laces for wear and tear and replace if damaged. Make sure you tie the laces to the top for correct protection.
Insole: Removable insoles can be sponge-cleaned and air dried after use.
Sole: Soles should be brushed and washed to remove dirt and contaminants. The slip rating (SRC) will be compromised if the soles are not cleaned as they are unable to make contact with the ground directly. Stamp your feet before removing to keep soles clean.
