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*
Puncture resistance*

* 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.
