What is Walkway Auditing?
Walkway auditing is a process involving inspection and testing of the walking surfaces of a facility.
ASA’s walkway audits performed to the specifications in the American Society for Testing and Materials Walkway Auditing Procedures include a comprehensive review of cleaning processes, chemicals used, safety materials as well as testing of the facilities flooring slip resistance for documentation of available traction. Recommendations for remediation in areas where the available traction is deficient to the standards are also included in the report provided with each walkway audit.
Pro-active walkway auditing can help insure the compliance of a facility. Regular audits establish an evidentiary trail of due diligence and fulfillment of the duty of care by a facility reducing the exposure to accidents and unwarranted litigation.
