Flooring materials provide a foundation for every built environment. Design considerations affect health, safety, and welfare issues. Material selection affects the risk and costs of slips and falls as well as cleaning time and cost.

This course is presented in three sections. In Section 1, we investigate the annual $40+ billion slip and fall problem in residential and commercial facilities, the causes, key definitions, and factors affecting pedestrian safety.

In Section 2, we explore types of flooring materials, contaminants, and zones. We describe best practice cleaning procedures to share with clients, and solutions to reduce the risk of slips and falls.

In Section 3, we analyze the physics of slip resistance and friction, new ANSI and ASTM standards available to measure friction, testing devices available for use in material selection and developing specs, and current OSHA/ADA compliance requirements related to flooring.

In 3 hours you will learn what you need to know. You will be able to apply your knowledge immediately, adding value on your teams and to your clients.

Section 1

What You Need To Know:

  1. The annual $40+ billion slip and fall problem in residential and commercial facilities
  2. The science of slip, trip fall
  3. Key definitions
  4. The science of walking and the human gait
  5. Factors affecting pedestrian safety.

Section 2

What You Need To Know:

  1. Flooring material and selection (resilient, non-resilient, specialty)
  2. Facility zones framework (walkway/facility, sources of contamination, cleaning/maintenance, risk areas/zones, monitoring/audit plan)
  3. Cleaning processes (daily and restorative, manual and machine)
  4. Solutions to reduce the risk of slips and falls using mats, traction tapes, and traction coatings.

Section 3

What You Need To Know:

  1. Slip resistance
  2. The physics of coefficient of friction (COF), static coefficient of friction (SCOF), and dynamic coefficient of friction (DCOF)
  3. The published standards available to measure risk and safety of flooring materials using wet static coefficient of friction (WSCOF), dry SCOF, wet dynamic coefficient of friction (WDCOF) and dry DCOF. Key standards include the ANSI B101.1 (WSCOF), ANSI B101.3 (WDCOF), ANSI A137.1 Acu-test™ (WDCOF), the new ANSI A326.3 (WDCOF), and the ASTM D2047 (Dry SCOF).
  4. The key ASTM standards related to walkways (walkway auditor qualifications, walkway safety).
  5. Approved slip meters available to measure COF.
  6. Current OSHA and ADA requirements related to walkways.
