This part of IEC 61340 describes a test method for determining the electrical resistance of footwear used in the control of electrostatic potential on people. This standard is suitable for use by the manufacturer of footwear as well as the end user. A method for measuring the electrical resistance of footwear alone is described and serves as an acceptance test for new footwear.
NOTE Although this standard does not include requirements for personal safety, attention is drawn to the need for all concerned to comply with the relevant local statutory requirements regarding the health and safety of all persons in all places of work that use footwear defined by the test method of this standard.
Insulating footwear is not included within the scope of this standard although the electrical resistance measurement techniques may be applicable.
