Chainsaw proof Andrew boots – the safest on the market

Chainsaw Safety in New Zealand Forestry

Forestry work is one of New Zealand’s most hazardous work environments, with chainsaw-related injuries ranking among the most severe. It’s not just advisable, but a legal requirement, to have the proper safety gear – including forestry boots. This is where class 3 safety Andrew Boots play a pivotal role in safeguarding forestry professionals with the best forestry boots on the market.

More than 2000 ACC claims are related to chainsaw injuries every year. Andrew Boots have been rigorously tested to withstand the impact of a chainsaw blade, offering unparalleled protection against potentially life-altering injuries. Without this level of protection, workers face the risk of severe lacerations and even fatal accidents.

Andrew Boots, with their multiple layers of Kevlar and robust construction, provide a level of defence that far exceeds standard safety footwear, significantly reducing the risk of potentially tragic outcomes.

Prioritising not only safety but also comfort, Andrew Boots are designed for long hours in demanding conditions. Uncomfortable or ill-fitting footwear can lead to fatigue, increasing the likelihood of accidents. By offering breathable materials and customisable options, Andrew Boots ensure workers can focus on their tasks without the distraction of discomfort or foot-related issues.

Accident safety is vital, so too is comfort during those long days on site. Long-term exposure to wet feet can lead to fungal infections, blisters, and may cause chronic conditions and nerve damage. Our boots, featuring a Sympatex lining, provide essential waterproofing to safeguard against these risks. And with options for full or three-spike configurations, you can customise your boots to meet your specific needs.

Investing in class three safety boots like Andrew Boots is more than adhering to regulations: it’s about safeguarding lives. Knowing the consequences of improper footwear and choosing the right safety gear, can mitigate life changing risks and ensure the safety of our forestry professionals as they carry out their vital work in some the most challenging work environments.
