ON UK SITES Timberland PRO® has launched a brand new, high-performance safety boot for construction site workers in the UK called Timberland PRO® PRO HERO. The new boots offer the wearer comfort, protection and durability as well as slip, water and abrasion resistance. They are priced at £74.99 (RRP), making them ideal for those involved in all types of construction site

work from bricklayers, carpenters and roofers to electricians and plumbers.

“We have listened to the needs of workers across the UK construction industry, who have told us exactly what they want from a safety boot and we have developed the Timberland PRO® PRO HERO as a result. A high quality product without a high price tag, offering a range of features specifically designed for the diverse trades at work. The new footwear has an uncompromising performance for rugged, wet environments with protection against impact, compression and puncture injuries,” said Stephanie Altit-Hazan, Marcom Manager for Timberland PRO® in EMEAI.

Designed with a PU injected outsole, that is not only lightweight but also guarantees excellent shock absorption, the boots give the wearer high slip and abrasion resistance on any surface. With sites often being wet and muddy, the premium upper – available in classic Timberland® Nubuck or full grain black leather – is water and abrasion resistant, as are the laces.

Physical protection against crush and compression injuries is delivered through the non-metallic toe cap


HARNESS Honeywell has launched its Miller H-Design harness, specifically designed for construction and general industry applications. Developed following extensive customer research and rigorous field testing to address the challenges associated with putting on traditional harnesses, the H-Design makes adjusting straps and buckles faster, while also offering greater freedom of movement.

“Designed to put user comfort, flexibility and convenience first, the ergonomic H-shape is the key to the Miller H-Design harness” explained Céline Verdot, Product Manager Fall Protection for Honeywell Safety


Products, EMEAI. “The large openings on both sides, without a crosspiece, combined with horizontal leg straps create a uniquely comfortable solution. As a result, Miller H-Design provides an unmatched user experience and workers using the harness feel unrestrained in their movements. They can subsequently focus better on the job in hand, leading to an improvement in productivity.”

Available with or without DuraFlex® stretch webbing at the shoulders for additional comfort, the Miller H-Design has special features that make it up to three times faster to put on than traditional harnesses. These features include easy to access buckles that offer the ability to make intuitive adjustments by pulling from the top, down (vs. traditional harness buckles that require pulling from the bottom, up); as well as a chest strap that can be adjusted for a more comfortable fit.

Customers can choose from two easy- to-access front anchor point options: two large, thin webbing loops, or a patented sternal D-ring that helps center workers in the event of a fall to prevent them from tilting sideways. The back D-ring of the H-Design is positioned at an angle to make it easy to reach and connect to.

The highly visible stitching and fall indicators positioned on the front web loops and back plate make inspection of the H-Design simple for safety managers and workers. The harness also comes with protected traceability labels to support inspection records. Water- repellent and stain free webbing help make the H-Design durable, reducing total cost of ownership. The H-Design harness also meets the requirements of EN 361:2002 and is certified for use up to 140kg.

whilst the steel midsole safeguards against puncture hazards out on site.

Comfort is also vital, so as well as being lightweight and flexible, the Timberland PRO® PRO HERO also benefits from both ankle and tongue padding and a removable, cushioned, technical insole that is antibacterial and antistatic to help keep feet dry and healthy.

The new Timberland PRO® PRO HERO is available in sizes 4 to 12 and certified to the EN ISO20345 standard for safety footwear.
