Update of safer surfaces to walk on - reducing the risks of slipping
About the update
This update to CIRIA C652 Safer surfaces to walk on – reducing the risk of slipping
(Carpenter et al
2006) has been produced to give an overview of developments in
knowledge and research in the field of slips (and to some degree trips)
since the guide was published. While the original intention was that
this would focus principally on research carried out at the Health and
Safety Laboratory, the update has also looked at developments in Europe
and research within other organisations, including some of those
organisations who have contributed to the funding for this update.
The original report was produced as a CIRIA publication, and was also made freely available through the HSE and RSSB websites. The update is being produced as a web-based document with the intention that subsequent material can be added at regular intervals. It is considered that this addresses the importance of the subject area.
