(price dependent upon your geographical location)

Surface roughness tests augment HSE approved Pendulum Test but is NOT admissible in UK courts. It is useful to monitor floor wear over time but the results are difficult to interpret and relate to how effective floors are at preventing slips; only the HSE Approved Floor Pendulum Test can effectively do that (Floor Surface Roughness Testing conducted FREE with Pendulum Tests)

Surface roughness test in engineering applications

FloorSlip can also conduct surface roughness testing for engineering applications as the equipment used is of the same accurate type achieving readings from 1 to 200 microns.

saving almost £100 on the separate prices (See Notes 1 and 2)

Additional work post Report Delivery and acceptance from £47 (See Note 4)

Note 2 - The Pendulum Test cost is NOT included, normally starting from £497. However, FloorSlip can offer Expert Witness Report + Pendulum Testing at £875 (+ disbursements) - A saving of approximately £100 on the separate prices.

Note 3 - it is our experience that a court appearance is mostly not required as our reports are clear and the facts and details are transparent and the report is accompanied with high definition images. This approach making it easy for layman and courts to understand and to alleviate the need to spend extra money getting expert witnesses to attend courts.

Note 4 - On occasion, FloorSlip are requested to adjust reports after acceptance. The cost will vary from nothing for minor requests and from £47 upwards depending on the changes required  

If you are a business looking to make floors safe from slip injury claim; or a Slip Injury Lawyer trying to prove/disprove a slip injury claim…… we can inform you that FloorSlip have spent many years providing CPR /COPFS Compliant Reports at affordable prices to multiple slip injury lawyers.

The Court Compliant Expert Witness Reports

Reports are impartial and FloorSlip are not tied / allied to a company than can influence that factor.

FloorSlip fully assess the floors and immediate area for relevant factors that could make or has made the floor / area unsafe and subsequently provide a full and formal ‘detailed’ Court Compliant (UK - CPR35 / Scottish COPFS) risk assessment floor safety report, comprehensively supported with images make it easier to envisage the slip injury locus and thereby removing the need for the slip injury lawyer or accident insurance company (for defendant or claimant) to be on site when a Pendulum Test is carried out reducing the costs of the case. The Expert Witness reports are written for use in Scottish Courts (COPFS) or UK Courts (CPR35). Whilst comprehensive for the task they are designed for parties / courts to achieve a succinctly informed judgement. The report will include (optional) ‘Options For Improvements’ where we suggest cost effective solutions to problems. We find the ‘Options’ section is welcomed by businesses and lawyers alike, where businesses are shown affordable solutions and lawyers can demonstrate to the courts that for an economical price floor slip injury accident claims might have been avoided.

Return to Prices Summary



Post Testing, FloorSlip can create a short report including images, which details the floors tested, an image of the locus tested; comments on the tests at each position and a map of the test areas to make it easier for Health & Safety Managers (and Insurance personnel) to quickly assess the floor states.

This type of report are especially useful: -

a) For larger establishments with multiple floors

b) To recall what floor was tested

c) Providing statements of options of floor safety improvements (if required)

d) Include,if relevant, comments about other slip / trip related factors (building regulations, lighting, lux levels etc.)

Please note - Prices will vary dependent upon the size of the establishment and related report - please contact FloorSlip to get a fixed price

Ramp testing is specialised, expensive and generally not mobile. Consider instead having Pendulum Testing conducted at 20% of the cost!, which can achieve a very close similarity to the results achieved in a Ramp Test and are a fraction of the costs of Ramp Testing (maybe 10-20% of the costs).

Ramp Testing It is not supplied by FloorSlip but we can provide the names of reputable organisations offering Ramp Testing. It is typically applicable to manufacturers wishing to offer new floors to the market place with DIN Standard 'R Ratings' but is rarely applicable to everyday circumstances.

Most Health and Safety courses are rather ‘dry’ to listen to and don’t address your particular business needs if your concern is about floor safety. To change this, we come to you and conduct an ‘On Site’ Health and safety course, which specialises in slip and trips and falls prevention and includes Pendulum Floor Tests and allows you to have a go and conduct a floor test yourself!

For practicality / effectiveness, the course is normally limited to 4 attendees and lasts about 4-5 hours. It is suggested selecting persons for the course who can influence change and attitudes like Owners, H&S Managers, Store managers etc. and obviously those persons who will be using the test equipment

We believe the price we charge is remarkably affordable (and about 25% of the cost of 'Government' organisations offering similar services and particularly considering there is FREE pendulum testing included saving you £500 (on a limited number of floors). You also save on staff time out,  hotels, travel expenses etc, by conducting the H&S Course on slip & trips on your own sites
