Slip, Trip, and Fall

Every year in America, millions of people suffer workplace injuries and among the leading causes of these incidents are slips, trips, and falls.

Our human factors and safety experts are detailed investigators of slip, trip, and fall incidents in industrial workplaces. Using extensive knowledge of code compliance and standards, we investigate incidents to determine the facts, conditions and events that led to a same-level or elevated-level fall in order to understand the cause, reconstruct the incident and identify potential hazards. Our consultants are also effective, trusted resources in both fall prevention and safety design, as well as certified in measuring the slip resistance of walkway surfaces using the English XL Tribometer.

Our technical library resources include those from local and state building codes and standards, 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).  In addition to the applicable codes and standards, our experts also review safety literature on falls, fall prevention, and safety design.
