Slip prevention: Validation of duplicates reproducing industrial floor surface state microgeometry

, : Slip prevention: Validation of duplicates reproducing industrial floor surface state microgeometry. Applied Ergonomics 33(1): 95-100, January

The present study falls within the scope of work on the prevention of slips occurring on industrial workplace floor surfaces. Floor microgeometry is a determining factor in anti-slip flooring. Industrial environment-based quantification of floor microgeometrical properties is more restricting than laboratory quantification. The aim of the present study was to develop a duplication technique allowing reproduction of in situ floor microgeometry so as to be able to quantify this microgeometry in the laboratory. Duplicates were produced from a sample of five industrial floors. Surface microgeometry was characterized for both industrial floors and associated duplicates in order to study their microgeometrical changes following the duplicating operation. The purpose of this process was to reach a conclusion on the "reliability" of the duplication technique, on which the use of such duplicates depends. Parameters established from digitalized surfaces reveal differences of less than 5% between duplicates and original floor and this enables us to conclude that these duplicates offer a high degree of reliability with respect to results dispersion.

A hamartoma, even if clinically silent, may lead to the development of malignant tumors on rare occasions.
