Booties
« on: January 12, 2016, 07:56:14 pm »

I may have just landed an A-V upgrade at a Mosque, but they've asked that my crew either walks around in stocking feet or uses some kind of slip covers over our shoes. Of course, we'll be running up and down ladders, so I don't want to create an unsafe situation using something like nurses and doctors wear. Any idea on non-slip shoe covers/booties that might work?

Instead of worrying about ladders, why not avail yourselves of a Hindu lift:

What about a dedicated set of soft rubber shoes that are new and only worn within the building. Like house slippers that are traded out for your shoes at the door?

That was my first thought, but when I asked the client he said no. We can be barefoot, wear socks, or pull some sort of slip cover over our work shoes.

I don't know if they'll accept something like this or not....

OSHA will shut you down immediately if they catch you without shoes. We use blue fabric slip on covers with non-slip bottoms when needed. I think I got them on Amazon. I believe they're originally designed for OR scrubs.

Yeah, I know that... We need a possible solution before bidding the job. Maybe something like this would work, but I worry about safety on ladders with this sort of cover.

In my other vocation we take of the home automation, IP network and security server infrastructure for a very wealthy home owner her in town.  It's a 36,000 square foot estate and we wear the cloth covers on our shoes to protect the flooring.  I have never had an issue climbing ladders with them on and I am an old fat guy.  They don't seem to slow the kids down at all.

I once had a job like that also. The butler told us that we had to take our shoes off. I told him that we can't do that because of insurance requirements. He said that we will be walking on a $25,000 oriental rug. I said well then, you better cover it with the NY Times or the Wall Street Journal. We can wait.

The owner, a very nice lady, couldn't care less and was one of our best customers until she passed away a couple of years ago.

Is the request to help prevent floor damage or due to a religious precedent?

It's due to religious precedent. No shoes in the prayer room. We have to rewrite the prayer room.
