As a safety footwear specialist for ORR Safety, I understand the needs of both safety program managers and employees when it comes to getting the right men's or women's safety shoes. Our shoe program is designed to meet the needs of employers and workers, while making the program easier for everyone involved.
Mike needs a secure, hassle-free shoe program.
Mike coordinates the safety programs for his company. He wants to offer employees a shoe program that provides them with one pair of work boots each year with a discount on a second pair if they need them. Mike has to manage a large number of employees and many safety issues. He does not have time to handle individual purchases, and he also heard of a situation where a worker was ordering several pairs of steel toe boots each year and reselling them.
I worked with Mike to explain how the ORR shoe program works. We handle all of the orders for the company and monitor the eligibility of each employee. Every company can set up the discount program that works for individual business needs and we take care of everything else, including providing split amounts for payroll deductions if required.
Bob needs a greater variety and the right shoe for the right job.
Bob has used a safety shoe truck with a previous employer. He was never happy with the limited number of styles available on the truck, never sure if all of the styles were compliant for his job, and didn't like waiting 90 days or more between visits. When he finally decided on one of the few styles available on the truck, he was informed that his size had been sold out and would have to be shipped to him. Even after receiving the boots, he discovered they did not fit properly. He spent days trying to contact the company to return the boots and waited forever to receive the right pair.
Part of our program includes providing employees with the information on how your company's benefits system works. Employees will know what type of shoes meet your safety requirements and we make the return process easy if their choice does not fit appropriately.
