The onslaught of the winter months brings with it the dreaded wintery mix of rain, sleet, snow showers, and icy conditions. It is so important to prepare for working outdoors throughout these months. Unsuitable footwear, such as your regular safety boots with a well-worn slippery sole, will not help to keep you on your feet when ground conditions become muddy and waterlogged due to the long periods of rainfall.

‘‘Year-on-Year,’ the stark reality is that slips remain one of the most common workplace injuries reported across the construction and heavy industry. The development team at Rock Fall UK has made great strides to improve their comprehensive range of ‘health and safety footwear,’ with the introduction of FORCE10® Outsoles and FORCE10® Scuff Cap. The technology is outstanding, hardwearing, and almost eliminates the slip hazard to the wearer.

FORCE10® Outsoles have been developed using a special form of Nitrile Rubber. This rubber creates a solid outsole that is abrasion-resistant and performs outstandingly under hot, cold, and wet conditions. Companies that must plan for year-round issues like rough, uneven terrain, extreme weather, surface water, and/or excessive heat (up to 300°C), now have the option of a specialist slip-resistant footwear range, developed exclusively by Rock Fall UK using FORCE10® technology.  

Introducing four bestselling all terrain work boots with Rock Fall’s FORCE10® Outsoles and FORCE10® Scuff Caps – Available at Bunzl Greenham service centres nationwide or online.
