Training on Pendulum Floor Testing Equipment

Do you have a Pendulum Test Equipment? Or about to buy a new Floor Pendulum Test Equipment? Than the chances are you will need training on the equipment and FloorSlip can offer on-site training for you. We will train between 1 and 4 candidates for you (same price for 1 or 4) in the method of using the floor testing equipment. The courses take about 3-4 hours and are conducted on your floors at your sites. We can either train you on your own floor testing equipment or we will train you on our own. All candidates have the opportunity to physically use the equipment as well as understand the theory behind the tests and the risks associated with slippery floors and how to avoid slip injury claims, which is critical when the cost of accident claims are rising all the time.

What is included in the floor pendulum testing training course?

1. Pendulum familiarisation – the components and purpose

2. History of the Pendulum; why the UK prefers the ‘British’ Pendulum

3. The Law on Slips on Floors; the 36 PTV pass mark and slip probability

4. Use of the different rubber sliders (55 and 96)

5. The Standards tested to - Principally BS 7976 / UKSRG guidelines

7. Setting up the Pendulum Test Equipment

8. Prepping and Verification

9. Practical test exercises

10. Testing on non level surfaces / floor slopes

11. Recording the Results

13. Relevance of the PTV (Pendulum Test Value)

14. Relevance of R Ratings and ABC Ratings

15. Using the Surface Roughness Test Equipment

Why choose FloorSlip over the UK HSE for training in the Pendulum Test Equipment?

Simply for Experience, Price,On Site training and After Training Support


The HSE are skilled in what they do but they cover many avenues of health and safety so do not tend to specialise in Floor Testing; where FloorSlip ONLY do floor testing and have conducted thousands of tests and built up a huge knowledge in the subject so are well placed to deliver effective ‘real world’ training courses in the Floor Testing Equipment


The last time we asked the HSE for a training course price for someone buying new floor test equipment from FloorSlip, we were quoted £4200 inc VAT per person for a 4 hour training course and the trainees had to attend the HSE (and no final certificate to say they were competent!). FloorSlip offer the 4 hour training for up to 4 persons from £799 (No VAT) - that’s a huge saving of £16,000 on 4 persons!! - Or we could test your floors for 32 years for the same price!


FloorSlip come to you and conduct on site testing on your floors . No hotel and travel costs for your employees, no risk assessments to conduct, no unnecessary time out for employees - and you even get your floors tested for free (Yes - we will give you a PASS/FAIL certificate if the floors  have been tested properly).  


FloorSlip are always at the end of a telephone or email and advice is not charged for so if you have any questions after the event regardless if its days or years then we will help you - Call FloorSlip on 07774 323267 / 07506 559952 or email info@floorslip.co.uk or contact the training manager - Paul Madden - Contact paul@floorslip.co.uk
