Definition : Shoes designed to prevent the development of electrostatic charge in the user. These shoes are made of conductive materials (e.g., conductive rubber), providing a path of low impedance from the user to a conductive floor. Conductive shoes are intended for use on conductive floors in environments where the risk of fire and/or explosion is present (e.g., operating rooms where flammable anesthetics are administered) or that contain equipment that is especially susceptible to damage from electrostatic discharge.
