FILA focuses on tile safety in new RIBA-approved CPD

FILA has introduced a new RIBA-approved CPD presentation, entitled “Ceramic and porcelain – how a correct cleaning regime can safeguard slip resistance”. The new seminar examines surface maintenance and its importance in terms of health and safety, giving advice on correct specification, with examples of high profile UK case studies.

With slips and trips a major cause of injury, FILA’s new seminar discusses the link with poor maintenance regimes and, in particular, an inadequate ‘initial clean’. Tile finishes are examined, as well as issues surrounding sealer specification and the use of acid and alkaline-based detergents. FILA then presents best practice advice, in terms of product specification, methods and maintaining slip ratings. Associated health and safety, sustainability and lifecycle issues are also explored, with tile samples available to provide tactile examples during the presentation.

To find out more about the new seminar and other FILA CPD’s, please contact Martin Ballard at FILA UK.
