Electrical Safety Matting Buying Guide

Electrical rubber mats should be applied at any point where Operatives are working with high voltage equipment where the risk of electrical shocks is high, including:

  • In front of switchboards
  • In front of machine control gear
  • In plant rooms
  • In lift control gear rooms
  • Portable protection for site engineers working on live equipment 

and need protection from the dangers of electric shock. 

Rubber is known for its exceptional electrical insulating properties. With the ability to reduce or stop electric currents, electrical rubber matting or switchboard matting is a common surface for high voltage environments. Used to protect workers from electrical shocks it is ideal for plant rooms, control rooms, switchboards and places where individuals handle live equipment.

Protecting feet against hazards in the workplace is key. The footwear you choose for your employees should meet legal standards, be appropriate for the task, the individual, and the environment in which they are working. It must also be used and cared for correctly by those who are wearing them. Employers are legally responsible for providing the correct footwear as part of the Personal Protective Equipment at Work Regulations 1992.

We understand that it can be confusing to decide what safety footwear is suitable for your workers, so we’ve put together this guide on the main safety footwear standard to help. 

What is EN ISO 20345?

The full name is EN ISO 20345:2011 Personal Protective Equipment – Safety Footwear and this is the standard that all styles classified as ‘safety footwear’ are tested to. It was formerly referred to as EN345, but this was replaced by EN ISO 20345:2004. EN ISO 20345:2007 was the next revision, followed by EN ISO 20345:2011, which is the current version of this standard. This will be superseded by ISO/WD 20345 In due course, which is still in development.

 The EN ISO 20345:2011 standard sets out new tougher minimum requirements than previous versions. It specifies that ALL safety footwear must have toe protection and also specifies a standard of 200 joules impact resistance (equivalent to a 20kg weight dropped 1020mm onto the toes), and a 15KN compression test (equivalent to 1.5 tonnes resting on the toe area). 

All safety footwear manufactured after the 31st July 2013 must meet this standard. However, this doesn’t mean that footwear made before that date is now of no use, but that those produced after that date will meet the new tougher standard.
