WELCOME TO WESSEX 
 

The Wessex Program prevention is better than cure 

For over 50 years, Wessex has produced a range of laboratory testing equipment for pedestrian and highway surface materials.  
 
Products such as the Pendulum skid tester and the Accelerated Polishing Machine have been designed and developed to test for the skid resistance characteristics of aggregates used in road construction. 
 
The entire product range is designed to be durable and reliable, undergoing continual development to improve safety and performance, whilst incorporating specific customer requirements. 
 
Wessex is a leading manufacturer in this specialist market, exporting and supporting products worldwide. 
 
Were you aware that slips, trips and falls (STF) accidents account for over half of all reported injuries?  
 
This costs employers and organisations substantial losses in liability claims every year, and costs individuals personal injury, even death, as a direct result of preventable slip accidents. If you provide flooring in a public area, then it is your responsibility to ensure it is resistant to slips. Many STF accidents are preventable: the Wessex program is designed to help with that responsibility, to provide a tailor made solution enabling prevention before a cure becomes necessary.
