Pendulum Slip Testing in Sports Stadiums

Perhaps the busiest of all environments, if only for a few hours at a time, stadiums bring together tens of thousands of pedestrians, food and drink, tiered seating and (one would hope!) a distracting environment.  The need for effective risk management in this environment is clear if slips and associated claims are to be minimised.
