ASTM F2413, 2018 Edition – Standard Specification for Performance Requirements for Protective (Safety) Toe Cap Footwear

This specification covers minimum requirements for the performance of footwear to provide protection against a variety of workplace hazards that can potentially result in injury.

This specification is not intended to serve as a detailed manufacturing or purchasing specification, but can be referenced in purchase contracts to ensure that minimum performance requirements are met.

Controlled laboratory tests used to determine compliance with the performance requirements of this specification shall not be deemed as establishing performance levels for all situations to which individuals may be exposed.

Any changes to the original components of safety toe footwear such as replacing or adding after market footbeds/ inserts could cause failure to any or all parts of this standard rendering the ASTM marking invalid.

ASTM F2413-18 is not applicable to overshoes with safety toe caps or strap on devices with safety toes.

The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

ASTM F2413 18 does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. 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.

This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
