Assessment of Industrial fire risks/mitigation measures

IndustrialThe assessment of industrial fire and associated risks for the purpose of underwriting insurance and mitigating fire risks has a history going back to the middle of the 1800s.

Ongoing research into fire risk, floods windstorm and other require considerations of reliability and resilience have to be taken into account.

Water supply and other reliability requirements differ from conventional properties. The complexity of risks including process risks associated with fires and explosions require complex analysis- particularly for high risk storage risks and processes associated with flammable or combustible liquids.

In this presentation FM Global will present an outline of their approach to industrial risk prevention and fire protection measures as well as mitigation of other risks in the industrial realm.

This will include the scope of FM Global’s operations and strategies world wide.
