If you need slip-resistant occupational shoes to avoid bad falls at work, then I recommend SRC slip resistant Safety shoes.
In this article I will answer the most frequently asked questions about slip resistant SRC safety footwear to help you find the perfect product for you!
In what cases should SRC slip resistant safety footwear be used?
- if you work in moist or wet places
- if at work you step on slippery surfaces, oily, greasy or if there’s food on the floor
- if in your job there is a risk of slipping and falling
What standards do they comply with?
SRC slip resistance is described in the standard UNI EN ISO 20345, in table 2 about the basic properties of safety footwear.
SRC slip resistant safety footwear are submitted to a specific test to measure their slip resistance on ceramic (SRA test) and on steel (SRB test), in compliance with DIN EN 13287. At a given pressure a shoe is slid on two different surfaces, each covered in a different lubricant. The resulting friction is measured.
- SRA = ceramic tiles + sodium laurilsulfate NaLS (friction coefficient during forward slip of the heel ≥ 0.28 / friction coefficient during forward slip on a flat surface ≥ 0.32)
- SRB = steel floor + glycerol (friction coefficient during forward slip of the heel ≥ 0,13 / friction coefficient during forward slip on a flat surface ≥ 0,18)
What is SRC slip resistant safety footwear
Safety shoes get the SRC marking if they pass both tests, SRA and SRB
SRC = SRA + SRB
