Slip Prevention Officer
Every large business should have at least one person who has been trained in slip prevention. A large is defined in terms of numbers of staff, square meters of flooring, or numbers of staff/customers walking on floors. For example a mainline rail station with 200,000 pedestrians per day will have a variety of slip risks.
Floor Risk Certificate
The certificate includes measures of slip risk taken in best/worst cases and taken in normal use of the floor. It should also indicate the normal use of the floor, the approximate footfall (how many people walk across the floor each day), as well as details of the normal types of contamination, and the cleaning regime (method, frequency, cleaning materials etc).
A floor risk certificate is a "living document" and additional measures or changes to the floor will be appended to the certificate file. The risk category coudl change if the floor is modified, if the cleaning or likely contamination is modified, or if the use of the floor changes in a material way (e.g. more people, or more vehicles or different footwear conttrols)
