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

Robert Frog
I was born in London in 1975 and still live here. I could define myself, summing up in a few words my long working career, a great expert in the field of foot and foot problems. Immediately after graduating in Motor Science I started working in an orthopaedics in which orthotics were made to measure for people with foot problems. In 1999 I was hired as Key Account Manager in a well-known chain of safety footwear and other personal protective equipment. Among my clients I had several industries, which I visited regularly to understand the needs of workers, both in terms of protection and comfort. During these years I have consolidated my knowledge on foot problems. Furthermore, I studied carefully the products I proposed: attending courses, participating in trade fairs and, often, accepting the invitation of manufacturers to visit the factories. I was thus able to observe closely the techniques and materials used to produce the best safety shoes. Since 2015 I have been collaborating with the PPE Academy for the content of Safety Shoes Today.
