“I’m a manager of a premises and we have recently carried out some refurbishments. Am I required by law to carry out a floor-slip test to make sure the floor is safe?”

Firstly, regardless of any statutory obligation – it makes good business sense to check the slip potential of floors. Slips, trips and falls are the most common contributor to workplace accidents – so if one of your staff, or a member of the public slips on your new floor it could have a significant impact on your business. The risk of slipping on a floor is associated with 3 factors – the type of flooring, contamination on the floor surface and the footwear. Testing the slip potential of floors before the accident happens is the best approach – LCE provide floor slip testing from as little as €150.

Now to answer the question in relation to legal obligation – yes, employers are required, by law to assess the risk of slips and to control those risks.  

Think workplace safety… think LCE. www.LCE.ie

What Our Members Say

“Tom Murphy Car Sales Ltd has been a member of Waterford Chamber of Commerce for over 25 years. It’s a membership that serves us well as we find it gives us a platform to interact with similar businesses and puts us in front of a wide audience. Having staged a number of very successful Chamber events, both at our dealership on the Cork Road and at venues chosen by the Chamber, it really puts into perspective the value of networking and meeting with potential customers face to face. We intend to continue the partnership between Waterford Chamber of Commerce and Tom Murphy Car Sales into the future, as the results speak for themselves and we see the value in being a member of Waterford Chamber.”
