You can reduce slipping accidents
Most slip accidents can be prevented. For every serious slip accident, there are 40 minor slips. When someone slips on one of your floors, you have a duty to investigate and measure the slip risk before someone is injured.
Slip Risk Explained
Slip risk is affected by the floor surface, the mode of walking and by any contamination between you and the floor. SlipAlert is designed to make it easy for you to measure the factors you can control: the slip resistance of the floor surface and the slip resistance including any contamination on the floor.

Testing your floors is quick and easy with SlipAlert. When you test your floors, you will find that different floors present different slip risk when wet or dry or affected by other contaminants.
