If you're a plumber you only want to deal with leaky pipes, not leaky shoes. Have a look at our guide below for some advice on which safety boots will be right for you.


It's vital that you go for waterproof boots, particularly if you're working industrial jobs - look out for WP in the product description to be sure you're getting fully water-resistant footwear. You will also find the term WRU, which means the upper has been tested to be water-resistant, but this is a slightly lower standard.

Slip-resistant soles are also important in environments where you're likely to encounter puddles and spills, For particularly heavy jobs some form of toe protection may be necessary.

Look for a defined heel if you're planning to use a ladder in the course of your work, as this will help stabilise you better on the rungs of the ladder.
