Footwear for professional use according to EN ISO 20345: 2011 is marked by an "S" (from English Safety = Safety) as Safety Footwear. The so-called "basic" shoe is marked with the letters "SB" (S = Security - "B" = Base). This shoe must have the following minimum requirements: • height of the upper • tip (minimum length, minimum support base) • upper in "crust" leather, microfibre and similar • front lining • insole • sole in any type of material, can be smooth • the upper, in the lower shoe, can be opened in the heel area. In the "SB" Footwear the following requirements are never understood if not specified in detail: • anti-static • energy absorption of the heel • dynamic waterproofing of the upper • sole with dowels • back lining • water-repellent upper • foil or anti-friction fabric. The following is the meaning of the stamping that you can find on the shoe.
The year of application of the CE marking and the identification number of the laboratory which certified its suitability have been deleted with the D.L. of 02/01/1997 n ° 10. The identification number of the laboratory must be highlighted on the usage note. - From 01/06/98 with the entry into force of EN 345: 1 the indication of the Country of the Producer is eliminated.
In addition to the Basic Requirements, others are provided, as indicated in the following table:
Below the sole the following information is indicated: - fit. On the bellows or the tongue of the shoe are affixed: - manufacturer's mark - the item code - the month and year of manufacture - the following markings: see conformity marking CE
Protective footwear under EN ISO 20346: 2011 are called "Protective footwear". They are essentially identical to safety footwear. The only differences are the following:
use in all workplaces where 100 J protection is sufficient
Work shoes under EN ISO 20347: 2012 are called "work shoes" or "professional". They are essentially identical to the footwear analyzed previously. They differ from not having a protection tip and the marking is done by replacing the letters "S" and "P" with "O" (from English "occupational" = work) and therefore identified with 01, 02, 03. The resistance to non-obligatory FO hydrocarbons must be indicated on the marking.
