Slip Prevention - often overlooked
Do you have a policy for slip risk assessment or how to monitor and manage slip risks?
Do you specify the levels of wet slip resistance for all new floors?
Do you measure the slip resistance before and after changes or coatings are applied to floors?
Do you monitor the effctivness of your cleaning and re-evaluate slip risks after any changes to your cleaning regime
Do your teams really buy-in to slip prevention?
Greater involvement and greater understanding of slip prevention will reduce claims and will help your teams to reduce accidents and injuries.
Is someone in your business accountable for slip injuries?
Historically, few businesses have trained staff to understand slip risk. A few H&S Managers may see presentations "talking " about slip risk and "hydrodynamic squeeze film" but few appreciate how to measure or managing slip risk. Teaching staff will reduce accidents, reduce injuries and reduce claims. It will save you money in the short-term and it will reduce your risk of longer term problems caused by poor floors or poor cleaning.

Staff Involvement & Training
Procurement and all responsible for new flooring
The principles of sustainability and safety demand that floors will provide adequate slip resistance at the end of an economically reasonable working life.
Health and Safety Manager
Slip prevention has been the “Cinderella” of health and safety. H&S manager in every business need a slip prevention policy and management systems that align with procurement, cleaning and flooring maintenance. Each floor area should merit its own slip prevention compliance plan.
Cleaners, Operational Staff, Floor Maintenance
Small changes to the cleaning schedule, cleaning methods or cleaning materials can make a big difference to overall slip risk. Green cleaning can be safe. Property owners and Facility Managers must educate staff to fully understand and manage slip risks.
