TRIPS & FALLS
InterCity has assembled a multi-disciplinary team of specialists, which can be drawn upon to meet the needs of specific accident cases. These consultants have intimate knowledge of the hazards and causal factors associated with slip & fall occurrences, including: knowledge of construction and building materials, adequacy of lighting conditions, the influence of surface unevenness and projections. Friction testing is performed to establish the extent to which the activity surfaces are slip-resistant under wet and dry conditions. Also taken into account are the safety requirements of building codes, local ordinances, OSHA Regulations and industry standards of safety custom and practice in the design and construction of safe walking, working or playing surfaces.
The education, training and experience of the experts in this field include Biomechanical / Biomedical Engineering (relating to injury analysis and the mechanics of human gait / walking), Civil, Mechanical, Safety and Human Factors Engineering and Highway Traffic Safety Engineering.
