The HSE (UK)state that for unencumbered, reasonably active pedestrians aged between 18 and 60, a PTV level of 36 or above represents an acceptably low risk of slipping when walking in a straight line on a level surface. The table below indicates the different levels of slip potential.

  • The HSE (UK)state that for unencumbered, reasonably active pedestrians aged between 18 and 60, a PTV level of 36 or above represents an acceptably low risk of slipping when walking in a straight line on a level surface. The table below indicates the different levels of slip potential



SLIP RISK ASSESSMENT: CAUSES OF SLIPS AND TRIPS

  • THE CAUSES OF SLIPS AND TRIPS

  • Slips and trips can be caused by a variety of factors, as set out below by the HSE:

  • WHICH FACTORS ARE MOST IMPORTANT?

  • In our experience, assuming a floor surface is fit-for-purpose, the cleaning regime is generally speaking the slip-contributing factor that one should to try to change first. The cleaning regime both has a larger effect on causing slippery floors, and is easier to change than other contributing factors
