The laborers are those who work in agriculture for which the strength of the arms is sufficient. Most often these are seasonal jobs.

This is a very hard job that is done outdoors all year round. The work environment of a laborer is characterized by a high degree of health and safety risks. We work closely with nature on different soils according to the area, the type of crop practiced and the seasons. You walk on dusty soils in summer, and muddy and dangerous as a result of rains or floods in winter.

We often bend or kneel and use agricultural tools and machines that impose the need to adequately protect ourselves from the associated risks. In this work, contact with animals and chemicals such as fertilizers or pesticides is inevitable.

It is often necessary to manually move heavy loads on uneven ground at risk of tripping or slipping exposed to the variability of the weather, but undoubtedly the greatest danger is related to the use of vehicles and machinery. You can also work in closed environments such as stables or warehouses.

Robert Frog
I was born in London in 1975 and still live here. I could define myself, summing up in a few words my long working career, a great expert in the field of foot and foot problems. Immediately after graduating in Motor Science I started working in an orthopaedics in which orthotics were made to measure for people with foot problems. In 1999 I was hired as Key Account Manager in a well-known chain of safety footwear and other personal protective equipment. Among my clients I had several industries, which I visited regularly to understand the needs of workers, both in terms of protection and comfort. During these years I have consolidated my knowledge on foot problems. Furthermore, I studied carefully the products I proposed: attending courses, participating in trade fairs and, often, accepting the invitation of manufacturers to visit the factories. I was thus able to observe closely the techniques and materials used to produce the best safety shoes. Since 2015 I have been collaborating with the PPE Academy for the content of Safety Shoes Today.
