"Standard Test Methods for Foot Protection"
These test methods contain requirements to evaluate the performance of footwear for the following: Impact resistance for the toe area of footwear (I); Compression resistance for the toe area of footwear (C); Metatarsal protection that reduces the chance of injury to the metatarsal bones at the top of the foot (Mt); Conductive properties which reduce hazards that may result from static electricity buildup, and reduce the possibility of ignition of explosives and volatile chemicals (Cd); Electric hazard to protect the wearer when accidentally stepping on live wires (EH); Static dissipative properties to reduce hazards that result in a build up of static charge where there is an underlying risk of accidental contact with live electrical circuits (SD); Puncture resistance footwear devices (PR).
A definitive procedure that produces a test result: Examples of test methods include, but are not limited to: identification, measurement, and evaluation of one or more qualities, characteristics, or properties. A precision and bias statement shall be reported at the end of a test method.
All equipment and/or accessories (whether or not detachable) designed and manufactured specifically to protect the foot and/or the leg and to provide anti-slip protection. This category includes protection against static electricity, risk of explosion, falling or rolling objects, crushing or penetrating, protection from exposure to hot substances and/or corrosive or poisonous materials

By agreement between the purchaser and the supplier, or as required by established safety standards, these test methods can be used to determine any one, or all of the following: (1) impact resistance (I), (2) compression resistance (C), (3) metatarsal impact resistance (Mt), (4) resistance to electrical conductivity (Cd), (5) resistance to electric hazard (EH), (6) static dissipative performance (SD), and (7) puncture resistance (PR). Please see the full standard for complete details.
