|Publication Date:||10 October 1998|
|ICS Code (Protective clothing):||13.340.10|
1.1 This test method measures cut resistance of foot protective devices which are designed to protect the foot when operating a chain saw.
1.2 This test method may be used to test for compliance to minimum performance requirements in established safety standards.
1.2.1 By agreement between the purchaser and the supplier, or as required by established safety standards, this test method can be used to determine any one or all of the following: (1) threshold stopping speed (2) pass/fail at specified chain speed, or (3) cut through time.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
1.4 The values stated in SI units or in other units shall be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system must be used independently of the other, without combining values in any way.
