    Hi all,
    I need your valuable suggestion on something. I am working the construction industry, it’s just been 5 months since I started, and I am mostly working in the site, and it involves a lot of risks, especially around the equipments. Last week, one of my colleague had a major injury, when one of the steel bars kept there, fell on his leg, and he has badly injure his knee now, and will be in rest for around 2 months. This happened mainly because he did not have proper safety measures, well, even I don’t use any. But, after this incident, I understand the importance of having proper safety measures. I am planning to purchase them, and have been checking online, and have found these, http://shop.mistersafetyshoes.com/collections/mens-6-boots, but I am confused between 6” and 8” one’s. Which would be ideal one? Also, I want to know about hard caps. I have never used these, and do not know much about them.
