OSHA has some very specific regulations regarding floor safety. These rules include keeping the floor of every workroom in a clean and dry condition. If wet processes are used, there has to be well-maintained drainage. False floors, platforms, mats, or other dry standing places should be provided where practicable. To aid with cleaning, floors, working places, and passageways must be free from any tripping hazards. In addition, floor loads must be held in compliance for mercantile, business, industrial, and storage buildings.
Floor safety in work areas is the area of expertise for many of our expert witnesses. We have flooring expert witnesses with backgrounds in specific types of flooring, including carpets, hardwood floors, tile, laminates, vinyl flooring, or sheet flooring. These professionals are also knowledgeable with the regulations for the manufacture, installation, maintenance, and use of specific types of floors, as well as their application in various industries and environments.
Other experts work with law firms and insurance companies on commercial and residential flooring safety issues. These consultations include current and future material degradation and projected replacement costs, installation standards, and investigations into slip, trip and fall causation.
