SLIP TESTING: YOUR DUTY OF CARE

Pool slip testing Adelaide

DEMONSTRATING SUFFICIENT COMPLIANCE


Slip and fall incidents are one of the main causes cited in personal injury litigation. As the onus is increasingly put onto cleaning companies, facilities managers and other stakeholders to be responsible for slip resistance, making an informed decision can be business-critical should an incident occur.


Just having the testing performed may not be enough to reduce liability if it is proven that:

  •  Appropriate testing methodology has not been employed,

  •  Test results have not been properly interpreted and classified, and

  •  Suitable control measures have not been implemented.


Your investment in slip testing information for your floor surface(s) indicates your awareness of duty of care as an employer, owner, manager or occupier, to provide a safe working environment and safe access for visitors to your building.


In fulfilling your duty of care under the OH&S/WHS Act and the Wrongs Act, it is important to respond to the information you now have. Used appropriately, the information from your tests may reduce serious injury and assist in the event of any legal action.
