Slip and Fall

- The goal is to increase floor safety awareness and prevent accidents.
- The ANSI B101.3-2012 wet Dynamic Coefficient of Friction (DCOF) standard joins the 2009 release of the ANSI B101.1 wet Static Coefficient of Friction (SCOF) standard and provides manufacturers a comprehensive approach to quantifying the “Traction” levels of all types of ceramic, porcelain, and polished concrete materials.
- One of the best ways to capture tracked-in moisture and soil is through the use of floor mats. However, using the right floor mat is important.
- The Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI) and The National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI) are partnering to reduce slips and falls by promoting the installation of NFSI-certified entrance matting, and carpeting wherever possible.
- Carpeting can help hospitals improve sound-absorption, indoor air quality, staff and patient safety, and aesthetics, but it also poses many challenges.
- Without a long-term commitment to comprehensive environmental management, not even the best high performance school can hope to stay high performing for very long.
- Since a floor that is slip-resistant when wet will generally be slip resistant when dry, taking measurements of the condition of floors by benchmarking the wet Coefficient of Friction (COF) is an important starting point to raise safety levels.
