ASTM F2413 05 PDF

Every year, thousands of work place injuries occur that could have been prevented with the right gear. Safety work boots are tested according to ASTM standards for impact and compression safety-toe resistance, metatarsal protection, conductivity resistance, electrical shock resistance, static dissipative properties, and puncture resistance. Below is a guide to help understand what exactly ASTM is and how safety footwear is tested. A safety test is performed by dropping a 50 pound weight from a predetermined height 1. Metatarsal protection is designed to prevent or reduce injuries when the toe and metatarsal areas of the foot are exposed to hazards.

ASTM F covers minimum requirements for the performance of footwear to provide protection against a variety of workplace hazards that can potentially result in injury. ASTM F covers minimum requirements for the design, performance, testing and classification of protective footwear. All footwear manufactured to the ASTM specification must be marked with the compliance to the specific portion of the standard. One shoe of each pair must be clearly and legibly marked stitched in, stamped on, pressure sensitive label, etc.

The marking must be enclosed in a rectangular border and a four-line format is suggested.

OSHA & ASTM Protective Footwear Requirements

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. 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. Non corrosive steel toes used in footwear to provide protection for the toe area.

Choosing the correct footwear for the job is extremely important in order to provide the appropriate protection. So, how does a worker or employer select such protective footwear? First, you should assess the work environment to determine any possible foot hazards and how you can protect against them. This assessment is important in a Personal Protective Equipment PPE program because it helps you choose the right footwear for each job and hazard. Typical foot hazards to look for during your assessment are sharp objects from tools or raw materials; falling or rolling objects like boxes, materials, carts and equipment; wet, slippery surfaces from spills or bad weather; electrical shock; hot surfaces like paving or welding; and cold surfaces and environments such as snow, ice and refrigeration. This standard covers minimum requirements for the design, performance, testing and classification of protective footwear. Then the requirements of additional sections such as metatarsal protection, conductive protection, electric shock protection, static dissipative protection and protection against punctures can be met.
