Why you should go with
UKAS accredited slip testing.
The Report will comprise of slip testing evidence that is far more likely to be accepted by the Court as credible evidence.
The UKAS approved training system ensures that all site and laboratory technicians are highly skilled in their field.
UKAS accredited laboratories can demonstrate a full audit trail for the slip resistance test, including calibration and consumables.
As a UKAS accredited company, Surface Performance will never temper reports to upsell other anti-slip products or cleaning services.
Why you not to go with
non-accredited UKAS slip testing
You cannot verify that the testing company is independent and notlinked to companies involved in the cleaning, maintenance, and installation of surfaces.
Lack of experienced resources can lead to inadequate and incomplete work and the possibility of incorrect test results being reported.
You may be exposed to future claims, and reports are less likely to be accepted by the Court as credible evidence.
There may be no formal complaints procedure in place, and the testing company has no accountability to UKAS.

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.
