Get a Grip! Why Should I Wear Slip Resistant Shoes?

For the safety of yourself and your coworkers, many utility workers, factory workers, linemen, parcel services, and construction workers rely on slip resistant shoes. You may have just been hired on to one of these positions and are wondering what is up with this. Here are a variety of reasons why you should wear slip resistant shoes on the job...

What Makes For a Great Hiking Boot?

When you get out on the trail, the most important piece of gear you can pack will not go in your backpack; they will be on your feet. When optimized properly, both synthetic and leather hiking boots offer the protection and enhanced capability you need to take on almost any trail. While traditional running or casual shoes may do just fine on the flat, even terrains, you never know when a large hill, muddy lowland, or rocky surface will come up, leaving you ill-prepared or stranded and forced to turn around. When looking for hiking boots, there are a few things to consider for choosing the best option possible.

The power of women when seconds count

HAIX® celebrated International Women’s Day by raffling off an intensive training course whereby the winners would get to take part in a course focusing on rescue operations at accident sites. And there was something different about this group of rescue trainees – yes, everyone was from a fire department or technical aid organization, but they were also all women! A group of 12 women, who came from all over Germany, were chosen to take part in the training. The group consisted of breathing apparatus specialists, section leaders and machine operators from small volunteer agencies and major city departments.

Quality that Rises Above

Quality describes "the quality of all properties of an object". And all the individual parts together make the whole. If any of these individual parts are not up to standard or, worse, are of poor quality, it will affect the overall whole. If, for example, the leather that is used in a boot is not ok, the boot can tear or have leaks.
Only when a boot is of high quality can it perform its tasks and ensure the safety and comfort of the wearer in extreme situations. This is why HAIX relies on high-quality materials for its "Made in Europe" boots and subjects all parts of the whole to strict quality controls.
