new Britsish Standard slip test SlipAlert

21st Century Slip Testing. Protect your business from slip risks...

New way to manage slip risk

HSE agree not all slip tests work

 

SlipAlert and the UK HSE

The HSE recognise SlipAlert as an accurate portable slip assessment tool. It has a very high correlation with the Pendulum, the de facto industry standard.

 

UK HSE and other slip tests

The HSE STEP website looks at other slip test machines including trundle tests such as GMG, FSC200, and Tortus. HSE conclude that these machines cannot measure wet slip risk. The reason that SipAlert is one of the few machines that can accurately measure wet slip risk because it travels at the equivalent speed of a real slipping foot and creates the same squeeze film effect aqua-planing that causes the slip accident.

 

 

 

written over 3 years ago. Since then, the HSE have growing evidence that SlipAlert is robust, practical and the best portable floor testing tool. Comments on slip test machines on the new HSE e-learning website.

HSE and HSL comments on SlipAlert

The UK government agencies the Health & Safety Executive and Health and Safety Laboroatories have formally tested SlipAlert and the report says...

 

"The extended testing of SlipAlert showed a
good correlation with the Pendulum test..."

 

"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"

 

"SlipAlert tends to give fail-safe readings"

 

Your help gathering floor safety data...

We'd like your help to prove the value of gathering real data on floors and the changes over time. Some floors remain safe for many years, others change from being quite safe to quite dangerous depending on the cleaning regime, treatments, coatings and polishes applied, the level of pedestrian use, other wear (trolleys etc), contamination, how people interact with the floor etc. Many factors can affect the risk of slips and many factors can contribute to the changes in your floors. We believe that every customer who regularly tests "at risk" floors and collates the data will help to build a knowledge base that will help prevent slip accidents. If you'd like to help us to gather data, then please contact us.

Visual Measure of Slip Resistance

The visual effect is important. As you will find when you use SlipAlert, it is easy to see if an area of floor has a slip risk.

HSE SlipAlert and floor cleaning...

SlipAlert is the best portable device we know of that will detect contamination on a floor. Contaminants change the slip resistance of a floor and many slip accidents are caused by contamination or poor cleaning. With SlipAlert you can prevent serious accidents.

"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"

 

HSE Shattered Lives Campaign

In 2008 the HSE Shattered Lives Campaign remind us that slips are the biggest cause of accidents and that businesses have a duty of responsibility to keep floors safe.

 

HSE / HSL using SlipAlert

The HSE / HSL use SlipAlert. They have conducted in depth research to prove that SlipAlert works and now each region has access to a SlipAlert.
