Electrical resistance is an important characteristic of safety shoes. Movement and friction causes a build-up of electrostatic charge in the body.

Footwear Safety Standards Explained

All safety footwear must meet the minimum safety standards are set out by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). The current standard for Safety Footwear across Britain (BS) and Europe (EN) is BS EN ISO 20345:2022, which is identical to ISO 20345:2021. It supersedes BS EN ISO 20345:2011, which will be withdrawn on 31 March 2023.
