Significance and Use
4.1 Characterizing the safety of a pedestrian walkway is a significant task, whether as a proactive effort or in response to an incident. In addition to experience, the qualifications for a walkway auditor should include reasonable familiarity with guiding documents, sources for research, walkway tribometry, and walkway safety. This guide outlines topics for a walkway auditor training course intended to facilitate that familiarity.
4.2 As certain countries have codified requirements for the methods to be used in walkway auditing, it would be impractical to keep this guide current with those requirements. Though elements of practice in other countries may be similar, the focus of this guide is on the practice of walkway auditing in the United States.
4.3 Additional information is provided in Appendix X1.
