While the majority of workplace slips and falls result in little more than bruises and bumps, some can lead to other types of accidents, such as falls from height.
Due to the accidental nature of slips and falls, it's difficult to anticipate the outcome. That's where our slip testing measurement tool can help, by identifying slip hazards and determining how to reduce and manage potential losses. Our Risk Consultants can offer this service as part of an on-site liability survey.
