||The effects on slip resistance of several factors linked to the manufacture or use of safety footwear were studied: 1) dispersion of slip resistance of various samples of different shoe models, assessed over a 3-year period: fluctuations varying from 14 to 55% were observed, according to the model; 2) effects of shoe wear through walking: slip resistance increased from 0 to 54% for compact elastomer soles and from 33 to 100% for polyurethane foam soles; 3) influence of the hardness of sole material: on smooth, greasy floors the effect, if any, is very slight; 4) effect of halogenation of the sole: no consistent effect on slip resistance. The shoe slip resistance measurement method standardized in France and Italy is outlined. The influence of other factors, particularly tread pattern and sole shape, is emphasized.
