Safety shoes with compression protection must be worn where objects could roll over workers' feet, and in operations involving skid trucks, hand trucks, dollies, etc. Safety shoes with puncture protection are required when working around nails, wire, tacks, scrap metal, and other objects that could pierce the feet.
