Sága Foods Zrt - Hungary (15/03/11)
"Sága Foods Hungary as a key player on the food processing market is on it's journey towards reaching "Goal Zero", that is a working environment without safety incidents. In the past years the most frequent cause of incidents was the slippage on the plant floor so a special focus was put on finding good antislip safety boots. After testing several local suppliers the results were disappointing so the EHS department started to search on a wider, international scale. This search process led us to get in contact with Stop Slip Ltd in the United Kingdom, the provider of the Shoes For Crews Guardian Wellington safety boots. The results of the tests carried-out in our plant in Sárvár, Hungary proved that the Guardian boots are excellent and by far outperform all local suppliers. The boots practically do not slip at all on any surface, even if the surface is wet. In addition, the boots are very comfortable to wear and, have a solid structure.
As a result, we ordered the quantity needed to change all the boots, so since mid-November 2010 all staff working in the production area have been wearing the Guardian boots. Previously, in the course of 2010 a total of 70 incidents happened due to slippage on the floor, but since the change we have not had any incident due to slippage. This is an excellent result that goes beyond our expectations so we can declare that these boots are indeed the best safety boots that we have ever used. The cooperation with Stop Slip Ltd is also very good and following the visit of their Managing Director Mr Paul Webb to Sarvar in February we have laid the ground for further common work.
In conclusion, if you would like to eliminate your safety incidents related to slippage we highly recommend the Guardian Wellington boots, and their supplier, Stop Slip Ltd."
