All safeTstep shoes surpass the minimum requirement for the Whole Shoe Slip Test – ASTM F2913-11. We have all of our shoes tested by a third party lab, Intertek Testing Services. Many of you may be familiar with the Mark II – ASTM F1677, which is no longer a valid test (as of 2006), yet we still test our shoes according to this method as well, since it is still occasionally referenced in the industry. Some points to consider when comparing claims from shoe providers include: which testing method was used, were similar styles amongst competitors tested, what were the conditions for the test (dry, wet, light oil, heavy oil, light oil + water, or heavy oil + water), and which mode was used (heel, forepart or flat). Our account representatives can walk you through the technicalities of where safeTstep ranks according to the plethora of configurations.
