Taking Care of Your Feet at Work

Taking Care of Your Feet at Work

Your feet can take a pounding in the workplace. The daily demands of your job may include walking, standing for long periods, lifting and jumping on and off machinery. While you are working your feet may absorb up to three times your body weight and working feet can travel up to 24 kilometres a day!

The work environment itself can create health risks for your feet. Hazardous conditions, such as oily and slippery floors, wet conditions or extreme heat or cold – put feet at risk of injury and can lead to foot problems.

Podiatrists are highly-skilled health professionals trained to prevent, diagnose, treat, and rehabilitate medical and surgical conditions of the feet and lower limbs.
