I have been time and again stating that being an owner, employer or a manager the law mandates you to ensure the safety of your employees, visitors, patients and customers, etc. in your premises from all slip and trip accidents and injuries. Yes, it is a criminal offence if you are not able to prove that you have kept your floors safe via pendulum slip resistance test in London and across the UK..
Not only you need to be able to prove that you did the test and your floors are safe, you must be able to prove it on regular basis. Yes, you heard it right; you need to be able to prove that your floors are safe and the pendulum slip resistance test was conducted within one year of time frame.
Irrespective of the space you own, a factory, a mall, a shop, a restaurant, a bar, a club, a hospital, a school or an airport, etc. your floors need to be safe. Well that would set you wondering if you have any other options than the pendulum slip resistance test in London and across the UK.
As a fact of the matter, you do have other options such as
- The ramp tests
- Rollercoaster test
- Surface roughness test
- Tortus testers
- Sled testers
- Pendulum slip resistance test
However, you must note that only the Pendulum slip resistance test holds an authentic stance in the court of law. No other test will be able to keep you safe in case you become subject to a slip and trip accident claim.
The tests are conducted by independent slip testing services and they are not even expensive to begin with. Let us consider what if you get the Pendulum slip resistance test done and your floors fail to clear the test
- Well then it would mean that the chances of a slip and trip accident on your floor are 50000 times higher.
- Even if someone would bring on a false claim, chances are you would still be liable to pay them the compensation.
- If you want to remain safe from any claims, you must immediately get your floors treated.
Well again, why would you want to get a test done that could lead to further more expenses?
Right? No, Wrong. You need the test results to keep you safe from all kind of claims as well as to decide if your floors need treatment at all or not.
