Definition of a standard for footwear protecting against chemicals and micro organisms (CHEM-SAFE-FOOTWEAR)

Project ID: G6RD-CT-2000-00262
Funded under: FP5-GROWTH

Abstract

The need for footwear protecting against chemicals and micro-organisms in special industrial situations has been recognised in EU legislation, but there has been a lack of test procedures for assessing the conformity of footwear. The project achieved the development of knowledge on the testing of footwear in a chemical environment, and proposed a set of standards for specialist footwear intended for use in these environments.
