Improve your cleaning regime


Plan, Manage and Control an Effective Cleaning Regime

Floor cleaning can cause OR prevent slip accidents. If you measure and monitor slip risk before and after cleaning you will be able to improve cleaning and reduce risks.

  • Cleaning fluids are not always left on the floor long enough to remove grease or clean properly

  • Measuring the slip risks before and after cleaning helps you plan the most effective frequency and method for cleaning

Avoid Risks During/After Cleaning

  • Depending on the wet slip risk, you may need to keep people off the floor until it is fully dry

  • Slip testing can tell you if a tiny residue of water will leave the floor dangerous

  • Your cleaning staff may be safer wearing effective (properly tested )slip resistant footwear

Changes to the Cleaning Regime

  • Slip testing can help you to plan the timing, the frequency and the method of cleaning

  • Slip testing can help you to adopt “green” cleaning methods that are effective

  • If cleaning materials /methods are changed, monitor the effect on the slip risk of your floors


Did you know?: On some floors, one tiny drop of water can be enough to cause a slip accident.


Avoid risks... test floors before/after cleaning

  • Carelessly mopping may spread oil or grease to create a higher risk of slipping

  • Cleaning machines used with the inappropriate pads may have a polishing effect that increases slip risk over time

  • Mopping a floor while people are still in the area can cause unnecessary slipping risk

  • Cleaning fluids can deposit a residue that may increase slip risk (if not rinsed away)

  • De-greasing floor cleaning products needs time to work. Slip testing will help you to determine the optimal method of use

  • Silicone polish applied to furniture or glass may fall onto the floor surface and lie un-noticed till someone slips



Floor cleaning can cause OR prevent slip accidents. Don’t let your cleaners slip up.


Slip Risk Table


If you measure the wet slip risk of your floor and find it safe enough for the use of the floor, then it important for your cleaning to maintain that level of risk and prevent the level of risk from rising. Poor cleaning or over-polishing may cause the level of risk to rise to an unacceptable level.
