Half of slip and fall accidents are caused by flooring. Moreover, slips, trips and falls from floors and walkways are the leading cause of median days away from work and workplace illness and injury. This interactive course lists slip-resistant standards and methods for testing flooring surfaces. It describes the key areas in industries where slip resistance is critical and the factors design professionals should consider when looking for flooring. The pros and cons of different materials, products and methods are explored. The course concludes with a step-by-step process for achieving building occupancy safety and developing an OSHA- and ADA-compliant safety plan.
