It is correct that low-cost slip resistance services are available. However, the only slip resistance test results that are credible in litigation are more likely to be the ones that come from the UKAS Certified Labs.
We are one of the three labs in the UK that hold UKAS certification. Though the low-cost slip testers will give you results, but how dependable are they? This should be considered before investing anything at all.
Once our technicians have visited your premises and conducted a thorough test, they bring back all the data to the Surface Performance laboratory. Our technical analysts analyse the data for various possible scenarios and prepare the report. The reports are then delivered to you within 48 hours of our technicians leaving your premises.
There is no definitive guidelines to this, however, a general rule of thumb is to have tests conducted once a year as a minimum, with more frequent tests carried out in high risk, busy environments.
If there is any chance of anyone visiting the property, or if the property has any such arena that anyone might pass through (even by chance), then we recommend getting the property tested. After all, it is a small investment that keeps you safe from slip, trip and fall claim.
If you own multiple properties, we would recommend a retainership agreement that will take off the pressure of scheduling which property is to be tested and when. We will provide you with fully auditable reports to ensure you are covered.
When you employ our services on an ad-hoc basis, it would be a contractual slip testing service. However, most of our clients who initially contacted us for contractual services hire us on a retainership. A retainership agreement for slip-testing services takes the pressure of booking the services every two years off your hands.
