Safety Shoe Program 2018

To All Rail Employees:

It’s time to buy your new safety boots for 2018. The shoe truck will begin making its rounds on January 30, 2018. I have attached the full schedule.

Rail employees who wear safety shoes or boots to perform their duties or while on company property will be eligible for a $60 subsidy towards the purchase of safety shoes or boots, provided they use the company chosen vendor. This is a voluntary program.  Safety shoes or boots purchased outside of the company vendor are not eligible for the subsidy.

If you also purchase winter boot style BAF8574, you will be eligible for a separate $60 subsidy off the cost of this particular boot.

There are three ways you may purchase boots:

  1. From the shoe truck – see attached schedule
  1. From the shoe store:

Saf-Gard Safety Shoe Company

2058 Rt. 27 Nixon Plaza

Edison, NJ 08817


  1. Through mail order – 732-287-2010

Finally, I would like to introduce you to our new employee from the Office of System Safety. Bill Feeney, Rail Safety Programs Administrator will now manage the Safety Shoe Program. He is located at Penn Plaza in Newark and can be reached at (973-491-8945) for any questions you may have.
