Do you know what the difference is between electric hazards (EH) and electric static dissipation (ESD)? Do you know what that means when it comes to choosing the right safety shoes or work boots? If the answer to that is... kinda, it's time for safety lesson.

Bacon wants to protect your feet with some helpful advice. 

Bacon’s Safety Tips EH vs ESD: Choosing the right shoe.

You know you need the right tools to get the job done. Don’t skimp on the tools that keep you and your workers safe.

OSHA’s foot protection standard 29 CFR 1910.136 requires that employees wear protective boots or shoes if there is risk for injury to the feet— that includes exposure to electrical hazards.

Whether you need non-conductive, anti-static or conductive footwear, there’s safety shoes that can help you get the job done. Remember to look for electric hazard foot protection. 
Make sure you know the risks and choose foot protection that keeps you safe and comfortable. So all your little piggies can go wee, wee, wee all the way home.
