Designed and manufactured to be used as a secondary source of electrical hazard protection.
These safety shoes meet the requirements of ASTM F2413-11 Clause 5.5
Designed and manufactured to be used as a secondary source of electrical hazard protection against the hazards of coming into contact with live electrical circuits, electrically charged conductors, parts or apparatus.
Footwear marked as EH has been tested and shown to withstand the application of 18,000 V at 60 Hz for a period of 1 minute with no current flow or leakage in excess of 1.0 mA in dry laboratory conditions.
EH safety boots should not be worn in explosive or hazardous areas where conductive or anti-static footwear is required.
Caution: EH protection is severely deteriorated in the following conditions :
• Excessive wear of the soling material or exposure to wet and humid environments or both.
• Where footwear becomes contaminated with conductive materials. For example, soles can pick up metal shavings, etc., which may reduce the effectiveness of the protection
Important : EH safety shoes should not be used as the primary source of protection in an electrical hazard environment.
