- Slip Testing
Safe Environments are a leading an accredited slip resistance testing facility by the National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA). For quality and reliability in testing and certification, we are a Registered Testing Authority (RTA) as defined by the National Construction Codes (NCC) otherwise known as the Building Code of Australia (BCA). Our slip resistance testing & calibration services include NATA endorsed reports issued from our Sydney Branch. Supported by our Melbourne office we can cover testing activities throughout Australia. The scope of our accreditation includes:
We are the trusted experts in the floor safety industry with other slip resistance testing companies choosing to calibrate their slip testers with us. We are the only company to provide NATA calibrations for Dry Floor Friction Testers.
Slip Check division of Safe Environments was founded by Mr Carl Strautins to provide independent slip testing services. As former CSIRO scientist who understands all aspects of slip resistance testing and compliance, Carl developed the accelerated wear slip test and actively participates in Australian Standards for slip resistance, presents at scientific conferences and is a member of the UK slip resistance group. Our independent slip testing services are backed with university qualified consultants in Sydney and Melbourne including materials & forensic scientists, building consultants & architects and occupational health and safety specialists, who can assist with further specialist areas in managing your property risk.
As trusted experts in the field, our expert witness test reports are used in legal proceedings, as we understand the science behind slip resistance testing and can communicate risk; not just provide the results by testing to the Australian Standards. The interpretation of Australian standards for slip resistance testing does not necessarily prove causation to a fall. Many other factors are required to assess the contribution of the floor surface to the risk of a slip and fall incident.
Call us today, whether you require independent slip testing services to provide a slip resistance rating for your tiles, stone, timber or vinyl; a test report for the floor you clean, as part of your cleaning contract; testing for compliance with building codes, or require an expert to help you understand the strengths and weaknesses of your court case for litigation.
We can help with all aspects including regular slip tests for property & facility managers as well as verifying the anti-slip treatments undertaken by companies to assist in reducing your risk.
