These are used to designate conductive Cd properties, electrical hazard resistance properties EHfootwear designed to reduce the accumulation of excess static electricity SDand puncture resistance PR. This final rule revised the PPE sections of OSHAs general industry, shipyard employment, longshoring, and marine terminals standards regarding requirements for eye and face protective devices and head and foot protection. Questions and Answers Q. They are used to designate conductive Cd properties, electrical insulation properties EHfootwear designed to reduce the accumulation of excess static electricity SDpuncture resistance PRchain saw cut resistance CS and dielectric insulation DIif applicable.
The identification code must be legible printed, stamped, stitched, etc. The footwear must have a lower limit of electrical resistance of ohms and an upper limit of ohms. According to the ANSI and ASTM standards, any protective toe caps or metatarsal guards must be designed, constructed and manufactured into the protective footwear during the manufacturing process and tested as an integral part of the footwear.
Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
Occupational Foot Protection According to It also identifies the existence of impact resistance Ithe impact resistance rating 75, 50 or 30 foot-poundscompression resistance C and the compression resistance rating 75, 50 or 30 which correlates to pounds, pounds, and pounds of compression respectively. It indicates that the protective footwear meets the performance requirements of ASTM F, issued in It is intended to protect the foot area between the toe and lower leg.
A work boot that meets the impact and compression requirements of the ANSI standard may not provide protection for metatarsal, electrical or penetration hazards.
ASTM F2413-05 EH Footwear Overshoes
This paradox exists because OSHA states in It is an integral and permanent part of the footwear. The values given in parentheses are for information only. The final rule went into effect in October I’m a client Email. The footwear must have a lower limit of electrical resistance of 10 6 ohms and an upper limit of 10 8 ohms.

It must be capable of withstanding the application of 14, volts at 60 hertz for one minute with no current flow or leakage current in excess of 3. Conductive Cd footwear is intended to protect the wearer in an environment where the accumulation of static electricity on the body is a hazard.
Footwear conforming to this specification must meet the performance requirements for the following: The footwear must facilitate electrical conductivity and the transfer of static electricity build up from the body to the ground.

Conductive Cd footwear is intended to provide protection for the wearer against hazards that may result from static electricity buildup and to reduce the possibility of ignition of explosives or volatile chemicals.
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. When is footwear with impact and compression protection suggested for use?
One shoe of each pair must be clearly and legibly marked stitched in, stamped on, pressure sensitive label, etc. This is followed f24113 the last two digits of the year of the standard with which the footwear meets compliance Post was not sent – check your email addresses!
Please Share With Others! The existence of metatarsal resistance Mt and the rating 75, 50 or 30 foot-pounds is identified. Then the requirements of additional sections astk as electrical hazard protection, conductive protection and protection against punctures and penetration can be met. This plate is an integral and permanent part of the footwear.
The puncture-resistant footwear must show no signs of cracking after being subjected to 1.
OSHA & ASTM Protective Footwear Requirements
The outsole is intended to provide a secondary source of electric shock-resistance protection for the wearer against the hazards associated with incidental contact with live electrical circuits, electrically-energized conductors, parts, or apparatuses.
The purpose of metatarsal footwear is to prevent or reduce the severity of injury to the metatarsal and toe areas. Electrical hazard EH footwear is manufactured with non-conductive electrical g2413 resistant soles and heals.
The device must show asmt sign of corrosion after being exposed to a five percent salt solution for hours. 2f413 allows employers to use PPE constructed in accordance with any of three national consensus standards the two most recent and the incorporated reference in the current standards. Puncture-resistant PR awtm features a puncture-resistant plate positioned between the insole and outsole.
Lines 3 and 4 are used to reference additional sections in the standard. Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email. Instead, this specification can be referenced in purchase contracts to ensure that minimum performance requirements are met.
This specification covers the minimum design, performance, testing, and classification requirements, and prescribes fit, function, and performance criteria for footwear designed to be worn to provide protection against a variety of workplace hazards that can potentially result in injury.
It is not the intention of this specification to serve as a detailed manufacturing or purchasing specification.
