Frequently Asked Questions
The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 requires employers to ensure the health and safety of all employees and anyone affected by their work, so far as is reasonably practicable, which means balancing the level of risk against the measures needed to control the risk in terms of money, time or trouble. This includes taking steps to control slip and trip risks.
Pendulum testing is carried out using a swinging imitation heel, which sweeps over a surface in a controlled manner - allowing the test to measure effect - resulting in a PTV value - giving a slip potential.
Slips and trips are the most common cause of workplace injuries and over 40% of all reported injuries to members of the public. HSE advise that the majority of all slip accidents happen when a floor becomes contaminated. Check out our services page for more information.

"I recently referred Christian as “best in the business” to a colleague of mine and I think that is worth repeating. He is a trusted adviser to Mitie regarding any slip, trip or fall issues that we identify and over the years his advice and support has been invaluable. The fact Slip Safety Services is well connected in the insurance industry also helps.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Christian or Slip Safety Services, to anyone regarding providing surveying, advice on slip issues, floor standards and remedial advice and works. "
Russell Bone QHSE Director, Cleaning & Environmental Services, Mitie
"If a client has a tile they like the look of but it doesn’t meet the required slip resistance, Christian is our go-to partner to treat the tiles post-installation. I’ve worked with Christian for several years and he has developed a very close relationship with myself and my team. Many people will claim to know about floor treatments, cleaning and care, but very few have Christian’s proven knowledge. He’s also a great chap on a personal level. I’d recommend Christian and his team for any slip or cleaning issues you are facing with tiled surfaces."
Ben Tingle Sales Director, Domus Tiles
