||The effect of spiked boots on logger safety, productivity and workload
||Apr. 1994, Vol.25, No.2, p.106-110. 15 ref.
||In a study of the effectiveness of spike-soled (caulked) boots, four loggers were intensively observed at work while wearing their conventional rubber-soled boots and then spike-soled boots. Results indicated that spike-soled boots were associated with a significant reduction in the frequency of slips and had no adverse effect on work methods, physiological workload or productivity. Spike-soled boots are now being promoted for use by loggers in New Zealand as a simple method to reduce slipping, tripping and falling accidents.
