Department of Human Services, Disability Accommodation Services (DAS), Victoria, Occupational Health and Safety Guidelines for Clothing, Footwear and Accessories Information Bulletin: 11 October 2010 states:

Direct support staff should wear shoes which are:

  • Fully enclose the foot to limit the entry of liquids, sharps, insects or spiders and to minimise injury.
  • Low heeled and flat soled of a material (tread preferred) that reduces the potential of slipping.
  • Thongs are not acceptable footwear.

The guidelines were developed in consultation with Health and Safety Representatives, Work Health staff and members of the DAS Area Occupational Health and Safety Committees.

If a member of staff does not adhere to these guidelines, their line management will take appropriate action
