||An ISO test method for determining slip resistance of footwear. Determination of its precision

||An interlaboratory trial was conducted using a total of eight test facilities for determining shoe anti-slip characteristics. The examination plan was based on an ISO-draft proposal defining requirements for the testing machines. Tests were carried out to determine the friction coefficient between a shoe and a smooth steel plate covered with a lubricant. Results indicated that although each test machine gave results of acceptable accuracy, the measuring results of the various machines differed considerably. It was agreed that the test method in its present form is not acceptable as an international standard.
