These electrical safety boots and electrical safety shoes are typically rated using the ASTM F2412-18 standard, which sets requirements for the design, performance, and testing of safety footwear. Electrical hazard safety boots and shoes are rated EH (Electrical Hazard) if they can withstand up to 18,000 volts of electricity and have an insulating sole and heel.
It's important to note that EH-rated safety footwear does not provide complete protection against electrical shock, and workers should still take precautions when working with electricity. Workers should also ensure that their boots and shoes are in good condition and regularly inspect them for any damage that could compromise their safety. This protection deteriorates rapidly in humid, damp and wet environments and with wear. Electrical Hazard (EH) Safety footwear is intended as secondary source protection equipment and not for live working.
