Slip, Trip and Fall

People can fall on same-level walking surfaces, and elevated levels such as stairs and ramps. Slips, trips and falls are frequent occurrences around homes and can prove very serious.

Our engineers and consultants have extensive expertise in investigating and evaluating slip, trip and fall incidents, including whether surfaces are in compliance with codes and standards. We investigate to determine facts, conditions and events leading up to any incident in order to reconstruct what happened and identify any present hazards and causes.

Our technical library resources and detailed research capabilities ensure our engineers and consultants have access to codes and standards from local and state building codes and ordinances, American National Standards Institute (ANSI), Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Underwriters Laboratories (UL). Our library is also replete with safety literature and resources on falls, fall prevention and safety design.
