How MyWorkwear's Safety Footwear Clinic can help you make smarter PPE choices.Member News
If you currently buy safety footwear for your team, or have been tasked with the job of doing so, how do you know that you are buying what you actually need? Or are you still ordering the same boots for everyone that you did 5 years ago
Introducing the MyWorkwear Safety Foot Clinic
At MyWorkwear we have spent 40 years helping businesses both large and small provide uniform and PPE for their workforces. Recently we have seen a dramatic increase in the number of companies call on our expertise as to what footwear options they should be providing to their workforce. Working together with Briggs Footwear we are able to offer an on-site Safety Footwear Clinic. The purpose of the clinic is to understand and advise on current Health and Safety regulations. We will then be able to show you products to meet your needs.
Case study Proto Labs
Proto Labs is the worlds fastest digital manufacturing source for custom prototypes and low-volume production parts. For one of their plants, located in the UK, their teams had varying footwear requirements as many departments specialise in different manufacturing processes.
Historically team members were given an allowance to choose the safety footwear of their choice. However there was no guidance on the suitability of the footwear for the different manufacturing processes. In addition there was no structure to the ordering process and no guarantee of delivery date from the various suppliers.
MyWorkwear and Briggs carried out an assessment of the footwear requirements for each department in manufacturing. We then made a selection of suitable footwear that met the set criteria. We also streamlined the ordering process and guaranteed lead times.
On-site in the Proto Labs canteen during lunch and break times, we manned a stand where team members had the chance to meet us in person and discuss their needs. This was a great opportunity to explain and show Proto Labs employees which footwear was best suited to their job based on the allowance provided by Proto Labs and answer any questions or concerns they had.
We found the day quite enlightening said James Worthington, MD MyWorkwear, The team members at Proto Labs were really interested to see what different options were available to them, try on samples and place their orders.
