Note: The intent of the language in Article 16.4b of the 2002 Collective Bargaining Agreement between the IAM and Boeing is to further the longstanding commitment to individual employee safety and regulatory compliance. Appropriate personal protective equipment and safety devices such as safety shoes in the above categories should help our joint pursuit of an injury-free workplace. Safety shoes that qualify for reimbursement are intended to be of an industrial grade nature. In general, tennis shoes and/or casual style shoes that are not steel or composite-toed, WILL NOT qualify as “approved” safety shoes. If such shoes are advertised by the manufacture as non-slip or non-skid or slip/skid resistant per ANSI standards they may qualify as reimbursable. Such approvals will be made on a case-by-case basis. Neither the Boeing Company nor the HSI is recommending or endorsing any particular brand or model of safety shoes/boots.
