Q: What effect will slip testing have on my staff / clients / visitors?
We require only around 1m2 of floor space for around 30 minutes to conduct tests. The tests themselves are relatively quiet and have no more effect on the surface than a pedestrian walking on it.
In high traffic environments we will erect pedestrian barriers and wear high visibility vests in order to reduce the risks of trips. All surfaces are thoroughly dried before being reopened; it would not do to cause a slip!
If you require a discrete approach we can censor parts of the test equipment revealing the nature of the measurements, or we can conduct testing ‘out of hours’, usually at no extra cost. We regularly test in shopping centres, hospitals, stations, restaurants, construction and industrial locations during open hours with negligible effect on staff/clients/visitors.
Your Grip Potential contact will be able to provide a risk assessment and/or method statement for the visit as required.
