SHORTT SUPPLY INDUSTRIAL FOOTWEAR
For over 15 years, Shortt Supply has been custom fitting shoes for the explorers and adventurers of the Pacific Northwest. We know a thing or two about why a good fitting shoe is the key to success in whatever you do!
Starting in 2021, Shortt Supply is ramping up to custom fit and meet the needs of the hard-working men and women of the Columbia River Gorge and beyond with Safety and Industrial Footwear.
As an employer, you want to make sure your employees use appropriate foot protection! Exposure to hazards that could injure feet such as falling objects, rolling objects, piercing/cutting injuries, and electrical hazards require industrial or safety shoes.
With few exceptions, employers must pay for all personal protective equipment (PPE), including safety shoes. If you get your workers from an employment agency, a temporary staffing firm, or employee leasing company, and you direct and control worker activities, you are responsible for providing and paying for their PPE under the same terms as if they were your own workers. Oregon OSHA recognizes that the best way to assure proper PPE and proper use of PPE is to have the employer with direction and control over the workers and the work, provide it.
We understand, as an employer, you can issue vouchers or purchase orders or provide a cash allowance. We are here to work with you and your employees in whatever ways makes the most sense for your organization. Your employees will be happy to get custom-fitted right here in the Columbia River Gorge!
Let’s talk about how Shortt Supply can be your Industrial Footwear provider!
