Do you know the standard which safety shoes should conform with?

safety shoes

All working footwear, for both men and women, whether it is safety wear or not, should 

provide comfort without compromising protective value. In addition, protective footwear 

should conform with CSA Standard CAN/CSA-Z195-14.

1. A steel toe cap should cover the whole length of the toes from tips to beyond the natural 

bend of the foot. A soft pad covering the edge of the toecap increases comfort. If the 

toecap cuts into the foot, either the size or style of the footwear is incorrect.

2. Soles come in a variety of thicknesses and materials. They need to be chosen according to 

the hazards and types of flooring in the workplace.

3. Uppers of protective footwear come in a variety of materials. Selection should take into 

account the hazards, and individual characteristics of the worker's foot.

4. A steel midsole which protects the foot against penetration by sharp objects should be 

flexible enough to allow the foot to bend.

5. No one type of non-slip footwear can prevent the wearer from slipping on every surface 

type.
