Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session is designed to provide the participants with a working knowledge of the basic principles of a premises liability – i.e. slip or trip and fall. The instructor will cover various codes and industry standards in use today to evaluate a slip or trip and fall incidents. The presentation will use examples of past projects at the University of Texas System to illustrate how an alleged slip or trip and fall incident is investigated as well as the possible outcomes. There will also be live demonstrations of the equipment used to measure the slip resistance of walking surfaces.

As a result of participating in this session:
 Attendees will have a better understanding of how to investigate or evaluate slip or trip and falls at their campus.
 They will also learn of the equipment used that can assist them from a risk management standpoint to determine if they have a construction, maintenance or human error scenario at play with the location of the incident and how to mitigate.
