This book investigates the factors that lead to slip and fall incidents and establishes a relationship between the coefficient
of friction (COF), floor slipperiness and floor roughness. It also examines human perception of slipperiness through measured
coefficient of friction (COF). On the basis of questionnaire surveys among manufacturing workers, it identifies potential
risk factors and assesses human perceptions of slipperiness. It also uses a tribology approach to relate the interaction between
contaminants, floor and footwear materials.
