Job-related foot pain and injuries can vary from mild, such as a blister caused by a work boot, to severe, such as the amputation of toes after a crushing injury.

According to the Canadian Center for Occupational Health and Safety, foot injuries fall into two categories: injuries resulting from punctures, crushing incidents, sprains and lacerations; and injuries resulting from slips, trips and falls. (Although slips, trips and falls don’t necessarily result in a foot injury, lack of foot safety awareness often plays a role in their occurrence.)
