Electrical Hazard

   
Safety footwear provides workers who may come in contact with live circuits, wires or highly charged electrical equipment, a secondary source of protection from electrical shock because of the insulating properties that stop a current from being grounded for a certain length of time.  Such foot protection is provided under dry conditions and the insulating properties will deterioriate in wet environments and with wear.   These shoes must not be worn in areas where there is static discharge or micro-circuit hazards.
