Active Standard ASTM F2965 | Developed by Subcommittee: F13.50
Book of Standards Volume: 15.07
Significance and Use
5.1 The slip hazard from aggressive contaminants on walkway surfaces is often found in commercial and industrial (not including construction) settings including fresh fruits and vegetables open display areas, manufacturing processes, food preparation and processing areas, rendering operations, transportation and cargo handling activities, petroleum drilling platforms, and other similar environments.
5.2 Ladder rungs, steps and other similar means of access and egress should be considered as walkway surfaces in slip-resistance analyses in commercial and industrial (not including construction) environments where aggressive contaminants are determined to be a factor.
1.1 This guide is intended to assist in the selection of walking surfaces and treatments where the foreseeable presence of aggressive contaminants produces the danger of a slip and fall injury events in commercial and industrial (not including construction) environments, for persons wearing appropriate footwear.
