Foot Protection

 
Foot Protection
Employers must assure that each employee wear heavy duty logging boots that are waterproof or water repellant, and cover and provide support to the ankle. If the employee uses a chain saw, the footwear must be constructed with cut-resistant material that will protect against contact with a running chain saw. Calk soled boots are acceptable when they are required for the employee's job. [29 CFR 1910.266(d)(1)(v)]

Underwriters Laboratories (UL) currently tests and labels foot protection which meets minimum cut resistance requirements. (Reference ASTM F1818, Standard Specification for Foot Protection for Chain Saw Users.)
