Slips, Trips and Falls 2016

The Way Forward

Call for Papers

The UK Slip Resistance Group is pleased to invite the submission of abstracts for inclusion in the Slips, Trips & Falls Conference due to be held in London on 4th – 5th October 2016.  This collaborative conference offers participants the opportunity to share and discuss their work with a friendly and attentive audience.

We welcome contributions on all aspects relating to slips, trips and falls on the level, falls on stairs or falls from height.  However, submissions addressing one or more of the following key themes are particularly welcome:

  • Measurement Principles and Technology
  • Human/Behavioural Factors
  • Architectural Design
  • Cleaning
  • Footwear

With the creator’s permission, conference presentations will be placed on a publicly accessible portion of the UK Slip Resistance Group website. The creators will also be invited to consider publication in an International Ergonomics Association (IEA) endorsed journal such as Ergonomics or Applied Ergonomics.  We similarly intend to post further material after the conference to assist in the lead up to the planned IEA Slips, Trips and Falls 2017 Symposium (to be held in the USA or Canada).
