We’re sure there will be more than just a few raised eyebrows at the latest proposed motion from the Trade Union Congress (TUC) – as they argue that high heels should be banned from the workplace due to the health and safety risk they present. The TUC believes that many women feel compelled to totter around in vertiginous heels in the workplace, and have even published a safety in heels guide for employers which states: “Heels should have a broad base and be no higher than 4cm (1.5in)… if worn for long stretches no higher than 2cm (0.8in).” Many women would say that they don’t feel properly dressed without slipping on a pair of heels and feel more confident, on a level with their male counterparts and presentable when they’re not wearing flats. Whether you love them or loathe them, though surely it comes down to personal choice as to whether you opt for heels or not. Let us know what you think, and how you view heels in the workplace.
