ASTM F2413 05 PDF

You must reduce risks by employing certain protocols to protect the stakeholders and any other individuals that are involved in the workplace. If hazards are present you must enforce engineering and governmental controls. Wearing the proper personal protective equipment PPE is essential in the workplace. A very important aspect of any PPE package is the protective footwear. The particular type and kind of this footwear are dependent on the hazards that are present in the workplace. And, it is mandated by law that employees in potentially hazardous conditions are to wear footwear that is designed to protect the foot.

The purpose of this standard is the certification of protective footwear. The certification must be performed by independent third party laboratories. Then the requirements of additional sections such as Metatarsal Protection, Electric Hazard resistance, Static Dissipative protection and Puncture Resistance can be met. Composite Toe A composite toe cap is made from a non-ferrous elastomeric material.

This material is also light weight and will not conduct heat or electricity. Steel Toe Non corrosive steel toes used in footwear to provide protection for the toe area. It must be capable of withstanding the application of 18, volts at 60 hertz for one minute with no current flow or leakage current in excess of one milliampere under dry conditions. The footwear must have a lower limit of electrical resistance of 1 megohm and an upper limit of megohms when 50 volts are applied.

It is an integral and permanent part of the footwear. Puncture-resistant footwear must be able to withstand a minimum puncture resistance of pounds force through the sole and heel area.

It also identifies the existence of impact resistance I , the impact resistance rating 75 or 50 foot-pounds , compression resistance C and the compression resistance rating 75 or 50 which correlates to pounds. The metatarsal designation Mt and rating 75 or 50 foot-pounds is also identified. They are used to designate conductive Cd properties, electrical insulation properties EH , footwear designed to reduce the accumulation of excess static electricity SD , puncture resistance PR , chain saw cut resistance CS and dielectric insulation DI , if applicable. Line 4 is only used when more than three sections of the ASTM standard apply.

More F It is not the intention of this specification to serve as a detailed manufacturing or purchasing specification, but can be referenced in purchase contracts to ensure that minimum performance requirements are met. Footwear conforming to this specification shall meet the performance requirements for the following: impact resistance for the toe area of footwear; compression resistance for the toe area of footwear; metatarsal protection that reduces the chance of injury to the metatarsal bones at the top of the foot; conductive properties which reduce hazards that may result from static electricity buildup, and reduce the possibility of ignition of explosives and volatile chemicals; electric shock resistance; static dissipative SD properties to reduce hazards due to excessively low footwear resistance that may exist where SD footwear is required; puncture resistance of footwear bottoms; chain saw cut resistance; and dielectric insulation. This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard.
