Slip Resistance Test Training

Whilst the Pendulum device remains the HSE and UKSRG's preferred method of testing, it is stated both in HSE and UKSRG Guidance that a competent and trained operator is essential.  As awareness and availability of slip resistance testing grows the potential for standards to fall is a growing risk.  Proper training provides operators with the knowledge and skills they need to make best use of the Pendulum.

Incorrectly assessing the slip resistance of flooring can cause significant expense as a result of; incorrectly classifying surfaces, providing erroneous recommendations to third parties, unnecessary expenditure on remedial works, failure to prevent accidents, or legal action against operators and/or responsible parties.

Lasting around 2-3hrs, training sessions can be tailored to individual needs and ensure potential operators/assessors are confident and competent in producing meaningful results.  With years of experience our trainers can answer all questions and provide time saving and ease of operation tips.  With direct contact to the trainer after the session operatives/assessors have expert guidance on hand if any new questions or issues arise.
