80% of people suffer from foot problems in their adult lives, many of which go unreported and undiagnosed. Foot pains are often the most unreported LTI (lost time incidents) for employers.
The changes during the walking cycle make correctly fitting safety shoes so important. Safety shoes that are too small can result in serious foot problems. Whereas tight shoes can cause nerve entrapment in the foot, which can lead to pain, discomfort, and numbness.
