Shoes and Boots for Electricians - Electrical Hazard Footwear
By: The Working Man

Electricians or those who work around electricity need to have
the proper protection on their feet or else they can get a nasty
shock or worse. An electric shock interrupts your nervous system
and can cause heart failure or heart attack. Having the proper
foot gear can prevent an accidental contact with electricity from
grounding through your body and causing you damage.

Anyone who works with or around electrical wires, live circuits
or charged electrical equipment had better have the proper
footwear. The protection of electrical hazard boots isn't as good
if they are wet or if they become worn down. You should replace
your electrical hazard boots when they show signs of wear.

DO NOT wear these shoes in areas where there are micro-circuit
hazards or static discharge, you need different footwear for
those places.
