New Blundstone 980 Underground Mining Boot Wins Health and Safety Innovation Award
We would like to send a HUGE “Congratulations” to our XRD® Extreme Impact Protection partner, Blundstone for winning the coveted 2014 NSW Minerals Council Health and Safety Innovation Award! The new Blundstone 980 Underground Mining Boot was recognized by Rob Regan, Director of Mine Safety Operations for the NSW Department of Resources and Energy, as “fundamentally changing the way a mining boot is made.”
Developed with the assistance of Centennial Coal, Blundstone designed and tested a new generation boot that provides high levels of ankle support and stability control whilst being extremely comfortable and fully waterproof.
Blundstone continues to make use of the revolutionary XRD® metatarsal guard that offers lightweight, flexible, and dependable impact protection…use after use. In addition, their unique footbed includes XRD® heel and forefoot inserts for extra cushioning and shock absorption throughout the day.
