Slip Testing in Food Manufacturing Facilities

Slip testing of food manufacturing facilities is essential in order to protect the workforce. Food manufacturing centres have a high risk of slips happening due to floors being contaminates with water and other liquids. Slips are four times more likely to happen in the food industry compared to other sectors and these slips account for over 80% of workplace injuries.

Slip testing of food manufacturing facilities is carried out in accordance with BS 7976 or BS EN 16165 in order to ascertain and monitor the slip characteristics of the flooring. Slip testing in the food industry should be carried out by a UKAS accredited laboratory. Please contact us for further information regarding our food industry slip testing services.
