Trip Hazard Brisbane

If you need services for any trip hazard in Brisbane, Blacktop Asphalt Repairs have a team of experts who can help. We provide cost-effective solutions to business and property owners to remove fall or trip hazards on sidewalks or walkways.

When assessing your groundwork, it is important to keep in mind your legal obligations to ensure that your surfaces comply with regulations and industry standards. Among the more common problems are trip hazards, which as the name suggests, are areas with abrupt height disparity that might make accidents more likely to occur when in use by foot traffic. The absolute maximum allowable sudden change of height in a pedestrian walkway is 6mm between two surfaces (stairs excepted), and failure to abide by that measure could leave you open to liability.

It might not seem like much now…

A trip hazard on your property might not seem like such a big deal. After all, 6mm isn’t a lot, and you might have had the hazard for years without any accidents or problems. Why should you pay to have something small repaired when there hasn’t ever been an issue?

In this case, you’ve just been lucky nobody has been injured yet. Playing fast and loose with injury liability means you’ll get caught out eventually and end up owing far more than you’d think in damages.
