This line identifies the gender [M Male or F Female ] of the user. The metatarsal designation Mt and rating 75 or 50 foot-pounds is also identified.
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 also identifies the existence of impact resistance Ithe impact resistance rating 75, 50 or 30 foot-poundscompression resistance Cand the compression resistance rating 75, 50, or 30, which correlate to pounds, pounds, and pounds of compression respectively.
All footwear manufactured to ANSI specifications will be marked with the g2413 portion of the standard with which it complies. It is intended to protect the foot area between the toe and lower leg.
Any changes to the original components of safety toe footwear, such as replacing or adding foot beds or inserts, could cause failure to any or all parts of the ASTM standard invalidates the safety marking.
Line four is to be used when more than three sections of the standard applies to the footwear. Email required Address never made public. The footwear must withstand a minimum force of pounds.
Puncture-resistant PR footwear features a puncture-resistant plate positioned between the insole and outsole. Per Appendix B to Subpart I safety shoes or boots with impact protection are suggested for carrying or handling materials such as packages, objects, parts or heavy tools, which could be dropped; and, for other activities where objects might fall onto the feet.

One shoe of each pair must be clearly and legibly marked e. Aztm and Answers Q. 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.
They are use to designate metatarsal Mt resistance and rating, conductive Cd properties, electrical hazard EHpuncture resistance PR and static dissipative SD properties, if applicable. Most manufacturers of add-on devices have submitted their products to independent laboratories for testing. The purpose of metatarsal footwear is to prevent or reduce the severity of injury to the metatarsal and toe areas. According to 29 CFR This specification covers the minimum design, performance, testing, and classification requirements, and prescribes fit, function, and performance criteria for footwear designed to protect against a variety of workplace hazards.
