Eliminating Indoor Tripping Hazards


Indoor walking surface irregularities are damaged, warped, buckled, or uneven flooring surfaces that may cause people to slip, trip, or fall. You can control this risk by:

· Replacing or re-stretching loose or buckled carpeting

· Removing, patching underneath, and replacing indented or blistered vinyl tile

· Eliminating trip hazards over a quarter-inch high in all areas of pedestrian travel, using beveling or ramps

· Replacing smooth flooring materials in areas normally exposed to water, grease, and/or particulate matter with rougher-surfaced flooring

· Making sure elevators are leveled properly so elevator floors line up evenly with hallway floors
