Impartial and Independent Floor 'Pendulum’ Testing conducted in accordance with British Standards (BS 7976-2:2002 + A1:2013 and BS 13036-4).

Using floor testing equipment & methods approved by the UK HSE (Health and Safety Executive). The Pendulum Test is the only test recognised in a court of law in the event of a slip injury claim because of its ability to provide consistent repeatable and accurate readings; Using any other equipment type can leave you liable for slip injury claims

Benefits of Slip Tests / Pendulum Tests

Keep you out of prison for failing to meet Health and Safety Laws

You are liable to 2 years in prison and a £20,000 fine (H & S Offences Act 2008) for breaching Workplace Health Safety and Welfare Regulations which states a slippery floor shall not expose a person to a risk to their Health and Safety. There is a duty of care for managers and employers to ensure slip and fall prevention is highly considered in your HSE risk assessments

Deter Fraudulent Slip Claims

The highest number of accident compensation & injury claims in the UK are for Slip claims. Accidents are easy to enact but difficult to disprove; a floor testing certificate prominently displayed will deter fraudulent claims and support your case in court in the event of an claim.

Saved you money by preventing accidents

£1,300 million is lost every year in claims, loss of profit, production losses, time off, sick pay and NHS costs

Floor checks help you maintain lower cost liability insurance

500 Million pounds awarded every year in personal injury claims for slip and fall accident claims and ‘limited’ liability insurance policies will not cover them completely and will increase the costs if you claim

Meet risk assessment criteria

A floor test certificate demonstrates floors are safe against the large majority of accidents - you know your customers, visitors, employees and members of the public and reputation is safe

Overview Of Pendulum Testing

The HSE approved Pendulum Test Equipment is set up on the floor and a gauge used to determine exactly where a ‘swinging arm’ will pass along and ‘slide’ across the floor.

The ‘Slider’ is a calibrated rubber of a known hardness mounted on a spring loaded foot. When it passes along the floor the spring is forced up into the foot and the slider rubs along the floor.

How much ‘friction’ is encountered will then determine how far the arm then swings through its travel, ideally there will be enough friction to slow the swinging arm down so a Pendulum Test Value (PTV) of 36 or greater is achieved

To meet the standards set by the Health and Safety Executive, a PTV of 36 ,MUST be achieved when the floor is WET (Critical), dry or contaminated (Wet and contaminated floors always give the worse results)

We can conduct detailed tests and assessments of the floor environment and reasons or circumstances why a slip might have occurred and furthermore the Pendulum test results are virtually irrefutable in court.
