Slip Test Case Study
Client: Rendall & Rittner Kidbrooke Village
Date: May 2020
Kidbrooke Village is a Luxurious Residential Block near Greenwich South London managed by Rendall & Rittner.
The flooring had become slippery when wet around the swimming pool and within the changing areas, we performed slip tests which failed with an average reading of 22. Test cleaning with PH neutralising chemicals indicated a large build up of Alkaline soap residue causing the areas to become dangerous under foot when wet.
All areas required to be thoroughly Machine scrubbed removing all build up of slippery residue. Particular care taken when working pool side and staff strictly adhering to Risk Assessments throughout process.
Once the areas were all cleaned, neutralised and a non slip chemical applied.
On completion further slip tests were performed and all areas passed with an average reading of 36. Reports were then issued to client and managing agent along with a recommended ongoing maintenance plan to avoid further build up.
