My current employer requires electrical safety shoes. We have many questions about what that really means. There is a standard from ASTM (F2413-11) but how do you maintain that rating? Do they require daily or before use inspection?  Why are they not discussed in 70E? It is clear about heavy leather work boot but no mention of this type in 70E. There is a question about composite toe or steel toe, as they both are used in the application. One piece of sharp anything conductive is one of my concerns. What is everyone else doing out there because this is causing much discussion in our world. We are 100 percent about electrical safety but are quite concerned about false sense of security here. Thanks Eric
