Electrical safety boots protect against electrostatic shock and electrocution. Also called electrical hazard (EH) boots, their soles provide a safety barrier that typically withstands voltage levels up to 600 volts. They are ideal for welding and maintenance applications and when working with live electrical currents and potential electrical hazards. Electrical safety boots are typically made of leather with rubber or polyurethane soles. They may also have steel toes to protect against compression and injury from falling objects.
