    Abstract

    The world has seen a vast number of portable floor slip-resistance testers over the years. But what do they actually measure? How do they work? Which testers can be used interchangeably? And which work as effectively as the United States-recognized James Machine? This paper addresses all of these issues and discusses latest trends in floor safety.
