It’s often not the final or only word, but Slip Resistance Testing of the surface where an incident occurred is a critical early step in nearly every Slip & Fall claim/case. Not all 0.5’s on the Slip Index are created equal and there are many more factors to be considered such as, footwear, walking speeds and activities, but performing a friction test is clearest indicator of the merits and challenges a claim/case may hold. CED engineers are experienced and certified at using the industry’s most recognized tools for performing Slip Resistance Testing and engineering disciplines can be used to establish elements of notice and to evaluate mode of operation.
