In Malaysia, the Department of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH) is the government agency responsible for promoting and ensuring occupational safety and health in the workplace. While DOSH does not issue specific certifications for safety shoes, they set guidelines and regulations that safety footwear must adhere to.
DOSH has adopted the Malaysian Standard MS 1599:2018, which specifies the requirements for industrial safety footwear, including safety shoes. Compliance with this standard is essential for safety shoes to be considered suitable for use in workplaces where foot protection is required.
To ensure that safety shoes meet DOSH requirements, manufacturers typically test their products according to the criteria outlined in MS 1599:2018. The shoes must provide adequate protection against impact, compression, penetration, and other hazards as specified in the standard.
Black Hammer Safety Shoes are approved by the Jabatan Keselamatan dan Kesihatan Pekerjaan (JKKP) as known as the Department of Occupational Safety & Health.
