The UK’s independent authority on slip resistance

Slips, Trips and Falls 2020

The annual Slips, Trips and Falls conference for 2020 is in Madrid, Spain. Hosted by the SRGS (Slip Resistance Group Spain).

The SRGS is the Spanish Association for the prevention of falls in pedestrian traffic. The same as the UKSRG (UK Slip Resistance Group) counterpart, it is the leading independent authority for slip resistance. The common goals include a greater understanding of causes and solutions to falls from slips, trips and falls.

The ObSRGS / SRGS Observatory is formed by national and international collaborators, of a multidisciplinary nature, directed with the aim of working in the study, analysis, research, training and information of each of the parameters or agents involved in falls.

The SRGS not only offers contact to related experts (from architects, engineers, public and private managers, manufacturers, laboratories, builders, maintenance and conservation companies …) but also creates a joint space, for all those who feel responsible for the materials used and installed in spanish projects, with the aim of preserving the health and safety of all users.

In short, the Observatory of the SRGS aims, with the participation of a network of national and international experts, to become a laboratory of ideas on the prevention of falls in pedestrian traffic, with the aim of developing proposals for improving accessibility , from the conviction that it is necessary to propose some reforms to put it in value as an instrument for a better development of public policies

Juan Iriarte Gil (Vicepresidente SRGS) attended the UKSRG Slip, Trips & Falls conference in 2016 in London and spoke at the UKSRG Members Meeting in February 2018.
