About Us

Scientific Testing Technologies Inc. (STT) was founded in 1994 by John Kovacs after more than 30 years of experience in custodial maintenance and floor care. This includes the founding of several companies and the development of systems specializing in floor care maintenance, operations, janitorial bidding, and training. John has involved himself in developing safety criteria to assess the scientific approach in the measuring of coefficient of friction of surfaces in order to determine the adequate slip resistance for pedestrian gait dynamics. From its inception, STT has specialized in the area of tribometric testing and field research. This testing and research has resulted in a practical system and methodology, “Validating Floor Safety”©, for STT’s clients to utilize and assimilate in their safety programs as a way to mitigate slip and fall hazardous situations.
