Search item. The requirements for pedestrian areas are manifold. Their geometry must be defined appropriately. Furthermore, they must be slip-proof, illuminated, and have a safety marking, if required. There are guidelines for the geometric design of pedestrian areas. Flooring materials used in working spaces with a risk of slipping must meet certain requirements. On the one hand, from the requirements classes of the R groups assessment groups for risk of slipping , as well as the V indices for the minimum volume of the displacement area of the flooring material for absorbing dirt.
The requirements depend on the respective activity performed on the flooring materials. Flooring materials for working spaces with a risk of slipping must be selected in accordance with the activity pursuant to annex 2 of the ARS A1.
Additionally, flooring materials in adjacent working spaces shall only differ by one R group at most. This is also applicable to the transition from interior to exterior spaces. This requirement may result in significant differences regarding the friction coefficient and therefore in risks of slipping or stumbling.
We recommend: for adjacent flooring materials, a friction coefficient differential of 0. Furthermore, we recommend a friction coefficient differential of 0. Compliance, specification, or verification of these values are not statutory at the moment. The friction coefficients may be measured by inspection authorities. Stumbling, slipping, and falling accidents are frequently caused by a lack of or insufficient illumination. Therefore, there are minimum requirements for the illumination that are established in the Workplaces Ordinance annex 3.
In this context, there are the following DIN standards, among others:. The statutory provisions mentioned define minimum light intensities. On the one hand, they are necessary in order to fulfil the visual task at the workstation related to the activity, e.
On the other hand, they are basically intended to help identifying and averting hazards in due time. Dangerous spots can be perceived better by means of appropriate safety signs and markings. Thus, stumbling, falling, and slipping accidents are avoided and reduced, respectively. They can be found in the national standards and technical rules.
Furthermore, the requirements regarding the safety and health protection labels in workplaces are described specifically, namely in the technical rules for workplaces ARS A1. There are the following warning signs in order to warn against specific hazards such as stumbling, falling, and slipping, and generally against dangerous spots pursuant to ASR A1. Yellow-black stripes must be used when identifying obstacles and dangerous spots safety marks.
This is particularly applicable for permanent obstacles and dangerous spots, for example spots where there is a special risk of falling. Red-white stripes must be used preferably for temporal obstacles and dangerous spots, for example for building pits. The design of the stripes must be in accordance with the requirements of the ASR A1. The workplace rule ASR A1. For example, black-yellow stripes must be used for this.
