Safety shoes

Safety footwear in accordance with DIN EN ISO 20345 and occupational footwear in accordance with DIN EN 20347 are part of your personal protective equipment and are tested in accordance with DIN EN ISO 20344.
Safety footwear is divided into 2 basic requirements:

•  Basic requirement I:  shoes made from leather or similar materials
•  Basic requirement II: solid rubber shoes or full polymer shoes (Wellington boots)

The basic requirements are each subdivided into categories:

Basic requirement I:

•  Category S1/O1: closed heel area, anti-static properties, energy absorption in the heel area
•  Category S1P/O1P: in addition to the requirements in S1/O1, there is penetration resistance
•  Category S2/O2: in addition to the requirements in S1/O1, there is the test against water penetration and water absorption
•  Category S3/O3: in addition to the requirements in S1/O1 and S2/O2, there is penetration resistance and a profiled outsole

Basic requirement II: 

•  Category S4: Wellington boots with anti-static properties, energy absorption in the heel area
•  Category S5: in addition to the requirements in S4, Wellington boots with penetration resistance and a profiled outsole

Additional requirements:

•  Symbol P: Penetration resistance
•  Symbol A: anti-static properties
•  Symbol HI: heat insulation
•  Symbol CI: cold insulation
•  Symbol E: energy absorption in the heel area
•  Symbol WRO: water penetration and absorption
•  Symbol HRO: behaviour towards contact heating

Slip resistance of the outsole: 

• SRA = Slip resistance on floors made from ceramic tiles with SLS (sodium lauryl sulphate solution)
•  SRB = Slip resistance on steel floors with glycerol
•  SRC = Passed test SRA +SRC

The safety footwear is also identified by its height:
•  Shoe shape A: low shoe
•  Shoe shape B: low boot
•  Shoe shape C: medium-height boots

The upper heights maynot be lower than those specified in the standard. 

Safety footwear must be visibly and permanently labelled:
•  CE mark
•  Type identification (kit)
•  Manufacturer (holder of the type test certificate)
•  Shoe size (including for orthopaedic safety footwear)
•  Category (S1/O1, S1P/O1P, S2/O2, S3/O3)
•  Manufacturing date (at least month and year)
•  Article number (upper design)
•  Applied standard (20345/20347)
•  Country (country of the type test)
•  Training number (for Orthopaedic Safety Footwear identifies the company which brings the shoe into circulation)

The regulations of type testing also apply for custom-made orthopaedic safety footwear, semi-orthopaedic safety footwear or series-produced safety footwear which have been orthopaedically modified or fitted with orthopaedic inserts, and the footwear may not be put on the market without a test.

DGUV rules 112-191

The DGUV (German Statutory Accident Insurance) rules for health and safety at work serve the prevention of accidents at work, occupational illnesses and work-related health risks. The DGUV rules 112-191 deal with the use of foot and knee protection.
