ANSI/ASSE A1264.2-2006 Standard for the Provision of Slip Resistance on Walking/Working Surfaces
: Brown Technical Book Store
This standard sets forth provisions for protecting persons where there is potential for slipping and falling as a result of surface characteristics or conditions. Three basic areas are addressed in the standard: 1) provisions for reducing hazards; 2) test procedures and equipment; and 3) slip-resistance guidelines. The intent of this standard is to help in the reduction of falls due to conditions, which in some fashion are manageable. The standard in its present form provides for the minimum performance requirements necessary for increased safety on walking/working surfaces in the workplace.
