Floor Sample Pendulum Testing - Prevent Slip Injury Claims in advance

From just £150, FloorSlip can Pendulum Test a wide range of new and used floor samples quickly and efficiently with a same day turn round of results (once samples are received)

Testing of floor coverings in advance will ensure the floor surfaces will have the required anti-slip properties to prevent floor slips that might otherwise lead to a slip and fall accident injury and subsequent accident claim.

(Typical slip injury claims start from around £15,000 and are the second highest claim rate - Whiplash is the first)

The range of floor types which can be tested

Floor sample testing is available for domestic flooring and commercial floor installations for: -

- Linoleum, Vinyl, Wood and Wood laminates floor testing

- Testing of ceramic, tiled, marble and Terrazzo floors

- Testing of steel and aluminium checker plate flooring

- Other flooring types may also be tested such as plastics and glass

Off Site Floor Testing for flooring samples before a floor costs from only £137

Sample testing beforehand using the industry / HSE recognised Pendulum Testing Method conducted to BS standards (BS7976-2 and BS 13036-4) proves to floor specifiers, builders and architects that the customers desired floor is not only pleasing to the eye but also of a sufficient slip resistance to satisfy Health & Safety Regulations; and to avoid future prosecution for dangerous slippery floor surfaces.

Additionally, arriving at specific Pendulum Test Values for each sample tested will give you a reasonable indication of a typical R Value that you are likely to see if you decided to conduct ramp testing using shoes show with a 96 rubber hardness or 55 rubber hardness slider or bare feet as the table below shows

Sample Floor Testing of Used Floors

FloorSlip can also conduct sample tests on used floors. We are typically asked to do this in slip injury claims where a floor has been replaced but samples of the original flooring are still available.

Safety Footwear Testing

Floorslip can also arrange ramp testing of safety footwear for a variety of reasons but principally for the ability to prevent floor slips. Footwear can not be controlled in public places and relies on a good slip resistance flooring specification at the outset.

We typically recommend ramp testing to test non-slip footwear in the following circumstances: -

1. To prove the ability of a particular shoe in conjunction with specific floor types and contaminants in a definitive location - e.g. in a chemical factory

2. To prove a shoe sole / heel combination for generic non-slip use; this is typically conducted using a rubber hardness of 55 on a range of floor types generally found in areas where non-slip is essential such as in a kitchen environment..

Slip risks can be vastly reduced by having a combination of anti slip footwear and non slip floors, which combined and when both floor are shoe are new far exceeds the Slip Resistance Values expected by the HSE

Important Note - Shoe Wear

Both safety shoes AND non slip floors wear out. Therefore employers and managers duty of care should be to monitor both. Note also, even in good intent, the combination of one safety shoe type and a floor of a particular floor slip properties may not work effectively in conjunction with each other and this can be tested for.
