ARE YOUR FLOORS SAFE?
Then it is very likely you are entitled to make an accident compensation claim.
Employers, Owners and Managers are entirely and wholly responsible to ensure Floors are safe at ALL times from the risk of Slip Injuries.
If you are an employee, customer, visitor, student, schoolchild, patient or member of the public then the chances are is the floor you have slipped or tripped on was owned by either a public or private body and they have responsibility to ensure the floors (pavements and and roads) are safe for the circumstances they will be used for.
Don’t delay, the longer you leave a claim the less likely it is you will win a slip injury claim
Floor Test 1
Dry Pendulum Value -
Chance of slip -
Floor Test 2
Dry Pendulum Test Value -
Chance of slip -
A Floor MUST have a minimum Slip Resistance Value (Pendulum Test Value) of 36 when wet to provide a 1 in 1 million chance of slip and avoid slip injury
This is an excuse that owners and managers use all the Time – They try to claim because your shoes are worn, or stilettos or the ‘wrong type’ that it is YOUR FAULT that you slipped on their poorly maintained and slippery floor – IT IS NOT YOUR FAULT
Employers and Managers must ensure they check floors meet the minimum HSE defined Pendulum Test Value of 36 when wet, dry or contaminated with substances relevant to that environment REGARDLESS OF SHOE TYPE*
Excuse the pun but Employers, Owners and Managers do not have a leg to stand on using the lame excuse that you were wearing the wrong shoes*
*Unless they are employees working in an area where it has been defined that shoes of a specific type must be worn and then specific PPE / non slip shoes must be supplied and maintained with sufficient anti slip properties and in good condition by the employers)
Maybe there could be another Wallace and Grommit film called “The Wrong Shoes!”
Didn’t you see the slippery floor sign? Those responsible will tell you It must be your fault you had a slip injury accident when they had put up a sign!!
WHAT UTTER RUBBISH ! -
GET A PHOTO OF IT! We do know of cases where floor surfaces are changed for non slip floors and floor coatings after a slip injury accident to try and avoid paying for a slip injury claim!
Under wet FLOOR circumstances a person is likely to slip (example when a spill has occurred or where it is being mopped) then if that floor can NOT pass a Pendulum Test when wet (or contaminated) then persons -
Of course -
More RUBBISH it’s a fact of life that the young's developing limbs don't always coordinate properly; the elderly aren’t as nimble; the sick might be on medication and diabetics struggle with balance -
You can make an injury claim or accident claim for anything from a work accident, industrial injury, or slip or fall through to asbestos disease (Mesothelioma) or clinical negligence. And if you or a family member has had a car accident resulting in whiplash, head or brain injury, and a whole host of other accident and injury claim types then you can make a claim.
It’s all about Negligence and the government’s failure to enforce Health and Safety rules and to tighten up on Floor Safety
It’s simply because BUSINESSES THINK THEY CAN GET AWAY WITH NOT TESTING – THEY CAN NOT, SHOULD NOT and WILL NOT – If you make that claim for a slip injury and NOW
The longer you leave it the more chance of the floor being corrected for and the incident ‘covered up’ before we can Pendulum Test It!
