ASTM is also known as the American Society of Testing and Materials. This international standards organization doesn’t enforce these standards, but companies can make it mandatory for employees to meet these guidelines and be compliant with ASTM standards. Materials, products, systems, and services are included in a voluntary consensus technical standards publication by ASTM. Some steel toe boots, for example, meet these standards for protecting your toes. The American Society of Testing and Materials operates globally and is based in West Conshohocken, Pennsylvania.

The winter season can present many challenges at the workplace as well as safety risks.  With cold temperatures and the presence of ice and snow, workers need to be thoughtful in selecting the right protective gear to wear on the job.  One of the most important piece of safety equipment is the work boot.  Without the right pair of winter work boots, you could be at risk for slips, trips and falls.
