Testing and Standards
Osha, The Occupational Safety and Health Association, is a federal organization that sets the standards for work place environments such as safety shoe requirements. The current standard for this is the ASTM F2412-11/ASTM F2413-11 impact and compression safety standards.
All our safety toe work boots and shoes meet ASTM F2412-11/ASTM F2413-11 impact and compression safety standards. They meet impact I/75 standards and C/75 compression standards, meaning the toe boxes can withstand having 50 solid pounds of weight dropped on them from a height of 18 inches, and withstand 2,500 pounds of compression.
