Evalluation of protective properties of safety anti-penetration inserts in footwear disigned for professional use (12) According to the currently valid PN-EN 12568: 2011 and PN-EN ISO 20344: 2012, the resistance of puncture protection insoles and footwear soles with mounted protection inserts prized with puncture is tested at pierce speed (10 ± 3) mm / min, using a stem ( "needles" / "nails") with a diameter (4.50 ± 0.05) mm with the end beveled at an angle of 30° to 1 mm. This is a relatively low speed compared to the one with which the lowering of the bottom can occur, e.g. when walking vigorously. The diameter of the test pin also exceeds a large proportion of the nails used in industry. Contact with sharp objects that may potentially be on the ground in the workplace is usually more dynamic. It is important that the footwear, and thus the insoles used in it, ensure the safety of the employee. The aim of the research undertaken at the Footwear Institute Laboratory of the Leather Industry Institute was to determine the impact of the piercing speed and the dimensions of the test pin on the protective capabilities of the puncture protection insoles and to assess the quality of these elements.
Work engagement as a factor reducing the risk of occupational stress - based on original research (16) Professional stress is the result of perceiving an imbalance between the requirements of the work environment and the employee's ability to cope with these requirements.

Commitment to work, i.e. a long-lasting and positive affective and cognitive state, can be such a resource. The results of the study confirmed this model. In the group of employees who were less engaged in work, the level of perceived work stress was higher than in the group of employees involved, and the level of this attitude significantly moderated the relationship between work and stress. Practical conclusions about organizational factors influencing commitment to work were presented.
