NFSI: National Floor Safety Institute

NFSI, the National Floor Safety Institute, was founded in 1997 as a nonprofit organization whose mission is to aid in the prevention of slips, trips-and-falls through education, research, and standards development. The NFSI is led by a fifteen-member Board of Directors representing product manufacturers, insurance underwriters, trade associations, and independent consultants. In June 2006, NFSI was designated as a Standards Developer for the American National Standards Institute in developing standards for Safety Requirements for Slip, Trip, and Fall Prevention under the NFSI B101 Standards Committee. In October 2009, ANSI approved the first NFSI Standard, ANSI/NFSI B101.1-2009, the Testing Method for Measuring Wet SCOF of Common Hard-Surface Materials. Standards from NFSI are available both individually, directly through the ANSI webstore, and as part of a Standards Subscription. If you or your organization are interested in easy, managed, online access to standards that can be shared, a Standards Subscription may be what you need - please contact us at: StandardsSubscriptions@ansi.org or 1-212-642-4980 or Request Proposal Price.

ANSI/NFSI B101.3-2012

Test Method for Measuring Wet DCOF of Common Hard-Surface Floor Materials

This test method specifies the procedures and devices used for both laboratory and field testing to measure the wet dynamic coefficient of friction (DCOF) of common hard-surface floor materials.


ANSI/NFSI B101.1-2009

Test Method for Measuring Wet SCOF of Common Hard-Surface Floor Materials

This test method specifies the procedures and devices used for both laboratory and field testing to measure the wet static coefficient of friction (SCOF) of common hard-surface floor materials. This test method provides a measurement procedure setting forth traction ranges that facilitate remediation of walkway surfaces when warranted. This test method does not apply to carpeting of any type or mechanically polished tile such as polished porcelain, marble, etc., but does address the common hard-surfaced flooring materials such as ceramic tile, vinyl floor coverings, and wood laminates, as well as coatings, polishes, etc. (Includes revised Letter of Interpretation 9/2010)


ANSI/NFSI B101.5-2014

Standard Guide for Uniform Labeling Method for Identifying the Wet Static and Wet Dynamic Coefficient of Friction (Traction) of Floor Coverings, Floor Coverings with Coatings, and Treated Floor Coverings

This guideline sets forth a uniform product labeling method which identifies the wet static and wet dynamic coefficient of friction (traction) of floor coverings, floor coverings with coatings, and treated floor coverings.


ANSI/NFSI B101.6-2012

Standard Guide for Commercial Entrance Matting in Reducing Slips, Trips and Falls

This standard provides the criteria for the selection, installation, inspection, care and maintenance of entrance mats and runners in commercial facilities in reducing slips, trips and falls


ANSI/NFSI B101.0-2012

Walkway Surface Auditing Procedure for the Measurement of Walkway Slip Resistance

This standard provides the technical procedures for walkway auditing and measuring the coefficient of friction (tribometry) of walkway surfaces in both public and private facilities.
