The ASTM (ASTM International, formerly American Society for Testing and Materials) is an international standards organization developing and publishing voluntary consensus technical standards for a wide range of materials, products, systems and services. Each year, the ASTM publishes the Annual Book of ASTM Standards, essentially a list of standards it has developed for various American industries to follow, in order to keep their employees safe. These standards include requirements for safety toe boots.
The below chart describes the various classes set forth by the ASTM for safety toe boots. Many industries have very specific standards their workers must follow in regards to the type of safety toe boot required for their business. While some of the below overlap from industry to industry others do not. It is important to be able to distinguish the codes for your particular job so that you are certain to get the correct safety toe boots to meet the standards of your particular industry.
In addition to the above class standards, safety toe shoes will usually come with symbols printed on the outside of them, listing their safety criteria. These symbols indicate the type of protection the shoe offers and will again help aid you in determining if they are a good fit for your particular job. It’s not just important to make sure you get the boots with the correct safety criteria but also the ones meeting the ASTM standards as well for your particular career. Your employer should be able to guide you in terms of both the ASTM standards and safety criteria required in their workplace for your particular position.
Whether steel toe or composite toe, safety toe shoes or boots are a requirement in many industries and the standards set forth by the ASTM need to be met. Do you research and learn the criteria and requirements so you can select a pair which meets your needs.
