SlipAlert better than the best and far better than the rest

below we compare the features of different slip tests their ease of use and ability to measure wet and dry slip resistance accurately and reliably. You will see that SlipAlert outperforms the best is far better than most slip testers.

 

A step change in floor safety

 

SlipAlert represents a step change in floor safety. In seconds anyone can measure the slip risk of a floor with greater accuracy and consistency than has been possible even in laboratory tests.

 

A step change in pedestrian slip prevention

With SlipAlert you can measure and monitor the slip risk of all new and legacy floors thus avoiding costly slip-ups. You can also measure:

  • the effectiveness of your cleaning regime

  • the effect of wear on the slip resistance of your floors (may be good news)

  • changes to floors caused by spills, wear, paint, anti-slip coatings etc

BOT-3000, TORTUS, GMG, FSC2000 and legal slip cases in court

Some will argue that slip test measures like the BOT-3000 are useful in court cases because they provide a credible measure of slip resistance and a printout of coefficient of friction of the floor. If you wish to contest evidence in a courtroom from the BOT-3000 or other slip testers such as the TORTUS, GMG, GSC200 then you should conduct a simple slip test on smooth tiled floors. Measure the slip risk of the dry floor, the wet floor, and the floor with a coating of grease or oil plus water. Many slip testers like the BOT-3000 will show the floor to be safer when wet than it is when dry. This is clearly counter to actual slip experience where most slip accidents occur on wet or contaminated floors.

 

Reduce slip accidents With SlipAlert = Guaranteed

 

Use SlipAlert as part of an approved floor safety regime and we guarantee that you will reduce slip accidents and slip injuries, saving you time, money and inconvenience.

Testing wet slip risk matters

Most slip accidents occur on wet floors. The GMG trundles acrosss the floor meauring the resistance between the floor and a small rubber pad. The science of wet slip resistance is complex but the key features relate to weight and speed. When your heel slips on a wet floor it is being lifted off the floor surface by a aqueeze film of water between the shoe heel and the floor surface. The GMG moves too slowly to simulate that aqua-planing effect.

 

What the HSE say about the GMG, Tortus, FSC2000 and Brungraber

The UK HSE tests of the GMG reveal it to be a reasonable measure of dry slip risk. It measures the coefficient of friction on dry floors reasonably well. However, according to the HSE,

"It is important to note that the HSE does not accept these tests as a valid method for assessing the slip resistance of floor surfaces as they provide inaccurate data in contaminated conditions."

SlipAlert alternatives... (our competition)

SlipAlert is the world's best dynamic slip test machine. There are alternatives: some good, some bad, some very ugly.

Slips account for 600,000 hospital bed days in the UK each year.

 

There are 40 minor slips for every serious slip accident.

 

Slips and trips are responsible for nearly 40% of all serious accidents.

 

Every three minutes, in the UK alone, there is a serious injury caused by a slip.

 

Some UK pools report having had as many as 8 slip accidents per day.

 

Most slip accidents are preventable.

 

"SlipAlert should be regarded as a good indication of available friction, lending itself to risk assessment, monitoring of floor surfaces and evaluating & monitoring cleaning regimes"

UK HSE

 

Mopping up spills can make the floor more prone to slips.

 

 

40% of industrial accidents start with a slip.

 

A SlipAlert Test Value STV of less than 136 means there is less than 1 in a million chance of somebody slipping on your floor.

 

When people walk fast or turn, they are more likely to slip.

 

People mostly stand with 2 feet on the ground. When we walk we usually have one foor on the ground. When we run we will at times have no feet on the ground. You can improve floor safety by changing the way people move on high risk floors.

 

Employers Duty of Care
“Your employer has a 'duty of care' to ensure, as far as possible, your health, safety and welfare while you're at work.”
www.directgov.co.uk

Many floors last for 20 year or more. during that time, parts of the floor may become accident black spots if a spill has not been cleaned properly.

 

When pushing a trolley you require greater traction. That is why it is often difficult to get a grip on the floor when pushing a heavily laden supermarket trolley.
