Magnum, traditionally a manufacturer of high-performance footwear used by law enforcement, military, fire, rescue, and emergency medical and service agencies around the world have broadened their range even further to include the new Work [Fit] collection, designed specifically for healthcare and food service employees.

When focussing on the healthcare market, our research has shown that whilst there is an NHS instruction regarding the use of protective clothing, including aprons, gloves, gowns and masks – there is no directive for footwear.  However, the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) do provide some “minimum standards” guidance on uniforms and workwear for employers and employees, stating that footwear should be comfortable, non-slip, have enclosed toes and provide support (sandals, clogs or shoes without heel support may not be deemed suitable when undertaking patient handling).  The Department of Health (DoH) also offer some guidance for NHS employers/employees, advising that it is “good practice” to wear soft-soled shoes (which reduce noise in ward) that are closed over the foot and toes, as closed shoes offer protection from spills and dropped objects, and open shoes risk injury or contamination for staff. 

To ensure we’re on-track with the NHS employee/employer requirements for footwear, we’ve created an online survey with a few simple questions, and to say thank you for your valued feedback, we also have a free prize draw!
