Slip, Trip and Fall

Falls can be very serious incidents. In fact, falls are the second leading cause of injuries in the United States, second only to motor vehicle accidents.

Our engineers and consultants have extensive expertise in investigating and evaluating pedestrian slip, trip and fall incidents. We investigate to determine facts, code compliance and conditions involved in same-level or elevated-level fall incident in order to identify causes and responsible parties.

The resources in our technical library combined with detailed research capabilities ensure our engineers and consultants have access to applicable codes and standards from local and state building codes and ordinances, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), American Society of Testing Materials (ASTM), American National Standards Institute (ANSI), Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Underwriters Laboratories (UL). Our library is also replete with safety literature on falls, fall prevention and safety design.
