Sharing Slip Test Data
We'd like your help. As part of Andrew's paper for the slip prevention conference, he is calling for more sharing of slip test data.
Repeatability and Reproducibility
One of the major advantages of SlipAlert is that the reuslts are very consisten and can be compared with Pendulum measures. We can compare new and historic slip test data at difefrent sites to profile how slip risk changes and how difefrent floors cope with wear, contamination and cleaning.
Sharing Data - Benefits
Sharing of slip test data will allow us to gain a better understanding of slip risks in hospitals, shools, factories or shopping malls. We can begin to understand how different floor surfaces and coatings cope with different levels of wear, contamination or cleaning. We'd like you to share your slip test data (confidentality about site/location/customers).
