This is a very sensible and pertinent question. Many, in fact, think that – with some exceptions – the replacement of the insoles can be done without precautions and precise rules. From our expert’s answer, however, we will see that this is not the case.

What rules to replace the insoles of safety shoes?

Good morning,

I have a question for you. Can the insoles of safety shoes be replaced at will or must the insoles have specific characteristics in order not to be included in the case of tampering with PPE?

Perhaps superficially I would reply that except for the cases of conductive footwear and ESD there are no problems. But what are the normative references that I can bring to support or modify my thesis? As I have some responsibilities in my company, I need an urgent and comprehensive response.

Thanks in advance,

Simone S.

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.
