Supplemental Information for US Safety Shoes Testing: ASTM F2413
The main US standard for safety footwear, ASTM F2413, only covers testing related to protective properties. These are listed in the following table.
|ASTM F2913 requirements|
|Impact resistance of protective toe|
|Compression resistance of protective toe|
|Impact resistance of metatarsal impact guard*|
|Conductive protective footwear*|
|Electrical hazard resistant footwear*|
|Static dissipative footwear*|
* indicates the test is applicable only if the property is claimed
Notably, slip resistance is not included in the above. However, in 2021 a separate standard has been published to address this: ASTM F3445 Performance Requirements when Evaluating Slip Resistance of Protective (Safety) Footwear.
