Fallen over recently on a slippery floor?

Build

Author: BRANZ,
Year: 1998
Type: Journal Article

Abstract:

Each year about ten thousand New Zealanders file claims as a result of slip related accidents. Nearly 60% of these falls occured in homes. One of the main reasons for so many slipping accidents is that slip resistance to floor surfaces is still not being properly addressed. BRANZ has recently published Bulletin 370 which will provide guidance and information on mandatory and desirable levels of slip resistance.
