Wolverine Boots - US Safety Boot Standards

This article discusses safety boots such as Wolverine boots that meet US government standards and help reduce injury in industrious workplaces.

Wolverine is a well known brand making some of the best boots for electricians, loggers and general industrial workers.

With the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, Congress created the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. OSHA as it is know, has a duty to ensure safe and healthy working conditions for employees, by setting and enforcing working standards that promote safety at work.

In order to determine what constitutes protective footwear, OSHA have established three footwear construction standards. Footwear that complys to any of these standards are deemed to be acceptable within their guidelines for protective clothing.

These standards are:
ASTM F-2412-05 - "Standard Test Methods for Foot Protection" and ASTM F-2413-05 - "Standard Specification for Performance Requirements for Protective Footwear"
ANSI Z41-1991, "American National Standard for Personal Protection -- Protective Footwear"
ANSI Z41-1999, "American National Standard for Personal Protection -- Protective Footwear"

Safety boots such as those manufactured by Wolverine meet these standards and are therefore more than acceptable as protective footwear as per US government recommendation.

In addition to the safety work boot standards required by regulation, Wolverine boots come with a whole host of other features such as 'Goretex' lining, 'Thinsulate' insulation and 'Vibram' sole and are available in many different styles to suit everyone.
