HSE Test results
HSE new interactive website, STEP, comments on various other slip test machines. The GMG test, the Brungraber MkII, Tortus and FSC2000 work in a similar way. Some of these tests are still included in international standards and results are quoted in manufacturers' data sheets. It is important to note that the HSE does not accept these tests as a valid method for assessing the slip resistance of floor surfaces as they provide inaccurate data in contaminated conditions.
Contact SlipAlert for more information.
CEN TC339 is the European standards group for slip tests. read the SlipAlert application to CEN TC339 and comparison with other slip test machines.
Should I buy, lease or use a professional service? That will depend on how often you need to test your floors. The first step may be to conduct a risk assessment of your floors and decide which floors are very safe and which need testing and how often. Floors that are treated should be tested periodically. Floors that are changed should be tested before and after the changes, and floors prone to slips should be tested regularly to ensure your cleaning is keeping the floor safe.
Ask your H&S Adviser for the best way to keep your floors safe.
