"Falls are not an ordinary risk of life."

It is always a cause-effect relationship.

Accessibility/ Slipperiness

Both Order VIV / 2010, dated February 1, which develops the technical document on basic conditions of accessibility and non-discrimination for access and use of urbanized public spaces, as each and every one of the different specific regulations for accessibility related to the design of urban environments, deal directly and expressly with the requirement of compliance with slipperiness.

For this reason both urbanized public spaces and areas of pedestrian use must meet the basic requirements defined in the different regulations.

Different members of the Scientific Committee of the SRGS advise City Councils to improve accessibility according to the slipperiness of the different pavements in the areas described above.
