Footwear Safety – APH025

Reviewed/Revised: September 2015


The purpose of this Administrative Procedure (AP) is to reduce the risk and potential of accidents and injuries to WCDSB employees. The intent is to identify the need for foot protection and to set standards for footwear throughout the WCDSB to reduce related accidents and injuries. The potential for foot injuries and related slip, trip and fall injuries can be prevented whenever practicable. To protect against those hazards, which continue to exist after all control measures have been implemented, appropriate protective footwear should be used. This AP applies to all employees of the WCDSB.
