FedEx Freight | Steel toes

[quote author=SMOKESTACK link=topic=79455.msg823669#msg823669 date=1271903300]
They told Freight that we don't need to wear steel toes anymore . If we do buy them and turn in the receipt for STEEL TOE SHOES then we will still get the $60 towards them other wise you will not. So the first thing one of the drivers says is "good I can buy cheaper shoes now." I laughed to myself and thought go get yourself a nice cheap pair of black tennis shoes ya dope. I spend about $150 to $180 for a very good comfortable safe shoe and will continue doing so for the safety and general well being of my feet. I just have to laugh at some of these fools. Here is another question , say you get your foot smashed by a steel bar rolling off a pallet how is the Workers Comp going to look at this ? I'll bet you get thrown under the bus in the end.

You can wear your tennis shoes if you want, but I'll spend a lot more than $60 on my steel toed boots. I can't tell you now many times they've saved my little piggies.
And yes, I spent the money before they gave us a stipend for them.

Welcome ...aboard

Hopefully your not a libral puke....either way.. Welcome
 
I've always been a big fan of steel toe boots and I will put them on everyday. The one day I did'nt put them on I had my right foot ran over by a forklift and it did alot of damage to my foot. The doctor said I was lucky not to have them on because the steel would have cut my toes off. I don't know if that's true or not but whatever I still feel safer with them on.

Myth-busters blew that theory out of the water awhile back. They made a replica foot and tested all kinds of boots. No way you lose your toes.

I prefer the 511 tactical boot with a composite toe. Light as a feather and super safe. Plus there's a holster in case I need to conceal a can of cheese whiz.
