In Malaysia, the most recognized certification for safety shoes is the Standard Industrial Research Institute of Malaysia (SIRIM) certification. SIRIM is a government agency responsible for the development and implementation of standards and quality in various industries, including safety footwear.
To obtain SIRIM certification for safety shoes, manufacturers need to comply with the Malaysian Standard MS 1599:2018 "Specification for Industrial Safety Footwear." This standard outlines the requirements for various aspects of safety shoes, including impact resistance, compression resistance, slip resistance, and puncture resistance. The shoes must undergo rigorous testing and meet the specified criteria to receive SIRIM certification.
Glad to announce that Blackhammer Safety Shoes has obtained the SIRIM cert of ISO 20345 : 2008.
