RR471 – A literature review of the effects of environment microclimatic conditions on the slip potential for flooring

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has published a wide range of publications concerning the risk of slips

The work detailed in this report comprised a literature/information review considering the following environmental parameters: internal air temperature, surface temperature, relative humidity, ventilation and air movement. Other environmental factors that can impact on the risk of slips and trips such as lighting and noise are also considered although in less detail.
