Standard specification for performance requirements for protective (safety) toecap footwear.
The specification contains performance requirements for footwear to protect workers feet from the following hazards by providing:
I Impact resistance (I) for the toe area of footwear.
C Compression resistance © for the toe area of the footwear.
Mt Metatarsal impact protection (Mt) that reduces the chance of injury to the metatarsal bones at the top of the foot.
Cd Conductive properties (Cd) which reduce hazards that may result from static electricity build up; and reduce the possibility of ignition of explosives and volatile chemical chemicals.
EH Electric hazard protection (EH), to protect the wearer when accidental contact is made by stepping on live electric wires.
SD Static dissipative properties (SD) to reduce hazards due to excessively low footwear electrical resistance that may exist where SD footwear is required.
PR Puncture resistance (PR) for footwear devices.
