Superior Uniform Group introduces slip resistant Tugs!™ shoes
TUGS! the new brand of safety shoes to be launched by the Superior Uniform Group is slip resistant, light-weight, durable, comfortable and stylish as well.
“We are excited that we can now outfit our employees from top to bottom with apparel and footwear from Superior Uniform Group,” said Frank Knapfel, Director of Safety at G4S Wackenhut. “Conditions in the security business are often dangerous and slippery, and it is an absolute priority to give our employees the tools to safely do their jobs. In our TUGS! product trial, we are realizing that slip resistant shoes make great business and people sense – reducing slip and fall accidents saves us money in claims and also reduces lost employee time due to injury, which ensures security guards for our customers. Our employees have also found the shoes to be extremely comfortable, stylish, and durable.”
The technology behind TUGS! has allowed the brand to consistently outperform all industry standards for slip-resistance. TUGS! feature four main components, including: Walking On Air footbed featuring Dri-Lex® moisture management, soft board insole, shock absorbing polyurethane, molded foam or EVA mid-sole, and a specially designed high performance slip-resistant rubber sole.
“The TUGS! product line has been well received by professionals and companies in all of the numerous markets that we serve,” said Superior Uniform Group CEO Michael Benstock. “We are confident the introduction of a footwear line will bring in more business, enhance our overall uniform collection and ensure the continued growth of Superior within these markets.”
The Liberty Mutual Workplace Safety Index states that injuries occurring from trip, slip or falls account for approximately 15 to 20 percent of workman’s compensation claims each year. The average cost from slip and falls is $22,800 per accident, and the total cost is estimated to be $6.7 billion annually.
“So, not only are we helping workers stay safe and comfortable, but we are also helping protect businesses from excessive lost time claims,” continued Benstock. “After all, it only takes one mis-step to cost an employer dearly.”
