HSL introduces a footwear rating system – ‘GRIP’

Posted by Tracy Seward

Slips and trips continue to be the biggest cause of workplace injuries – so it is really important that footwear being offered to your workforce offers them the right level of slip resistance.

The Health & Safety Laboratory (HSL) has launched a new footwear rating scheme called ‘GRIP.’   GRIP provides free information to health and safety managers so that they can make informed, evidence-based decisions before purchasing resistance footwear.

Its new white paper ‘Get a GRIP’ explains how the scheme works and where you can get further information about which footwear has been rated.

To request your copy, please e-mail productsupport@hsl.gsi.gov.uk quoting GRIPWPHSE.
