What is ANSI Approval

NewsID:116    Datetime:2010-12-10

ANSI, or the American National Standards Institute, is a non-profit organization that creates a set of standards that represent the minimum that products and services need to pass in order for them to be considered acceptable in their field. ANSI uses these standards to approve products for safety, ease and for successfully reaching the expectations of the particular product.

ANSI and Shoes

ANSI has created a set of standards for safety shoes. These standards vary for each type of shoe – so, for example, a safety shoe that is expected to keep you safe from electrical shock is going to have different standards than one that is created with a steel toe for the construction work place. Many of the ANSI standards will have similarities, but ANSI creates different qualifications for each shoe type in order to ensure that the shoe keeps the individual safe for the occupation it is meant for.

ANSI Approval

When you see a safety shoe that has been ANSI approved, that shoe has met every one of the standards that ANSI has set forward for it. Because that shoe will have met all of the minimum requirements, you can be sure that the shoe is designed correctly for the safety that it is expected to achieve.

There will be shoes that are ANSI approved that are safer than other ANSI approved shoes, however. The set of standards represents a minimum that ANSI deems appropriate for the goal of the shoe. Should a shoe manufacturer want to create a shoe that is safer, the manufacturer is allowed to do so, and thus although looking for ANSI standards is a good idea, if you are looking for the safest shoe you will need to continue to do your research.

ANSI standards are a helpful way of making sure that your safety shoes will provided you with the minimum acceptable amount of safety precautions. While they are not the final verdict on shoe safety, they will ensure that you are protected from injury in most circumstances.
