UK Floor Slip Resistance Guidelines

The latest edition of the UK Slip Resistance Group (UKSRG) guidelines for the measurement of floor slip resistance will be launched at a conference at BRE, Watford on 27 October 2005.

The guidelines aim to help architects, specifiers, cleaning contractors, flooring manufacturers, test houses and associated consultants to reduce the risk of pedestrian slip accidents. They describe the use of the Pendulum and a roughness metre to access floors for slipperiness. The new edition includes some important changes to the existing guidelines that were published in 2000.

Supported by the Health and Safety Executive, the conference will include:

  • an introduction to the UKSRG guidelines Version 3 - why the new guidelines - why the Pendulum
  • the application of the guidelines - practical demonstration - slope, profile, flooring and stairs
  • complementary methods SAT, SlipAlert, HSL ramp method
  • practical examples - preventing slip and trip accidents: a behavioural approach - specifying slip resistance of flooring: an architect's view - reducing slip and trip accidents in the workforce: a motivated food industry.

There will be an exhibition at the conference, and a copy of the guidelines will be included in the delegate pack.
