Slip Testing Services
Independent slip testing surfaces helps property owners and managers to Reduce Your Risk!
Regular slip resistance measurement is an integral part of any risk management program, establishing that the slip resistance of pedestrian surfaces comply with the National Construction Code (NCC) requirements and other surface application recommendations.
There are many factors that may influence the risk of slips and falls. For property managers and owners, the level of slip resistance of a property's pedestrian surfaces is one area that can be monitored.
Other factors that may influence a slip fall incident include type of footwear, speed and type of gait, use of walking aids, and lighting.
Areas tested include any internal and external walkways, steps and ramps, common loading bays, pedestrian crossings and other painted car park indicators, food preparation and wet waste handling areas, toilets and many other locations.
