Property Loss Prevention

The insurance industry is one of the strongest, and well-financed interest groups in the standards system of any nation. Our focus on the user-interest (the weakest interest group in all global standards system) requires an understanding of the business objectives of the insurance industry. We do not advocate in the FM Global suite of documents; we simply track their presence in risk management practices and in the consensus documents where we have an opportunity to influence how, of if they effectively become part of our #TotalCostofOwnership agenda.

FM Global is one of several organizations that produce technical and business documents that set the standard of care for education facilities.   These standards contribute to the reduction in the risk of property loss due to fire, weather conditions, and failure of electrical or mechanical equipment.  They incorporate nearly 200 years of property loss experience, research and engineering results, as well as input from consensus standards committees, equipment manufacturers and others.

A scan of its list data sheets today indicate a number of noteworthy updates of documents establishing minimum requirements for safety technologies common in education facilities:

FM Global provides direct access to the full span of its documents at this link:


You will need to set up (free) access credentials.   Our “door” is open every day at 11 AM Eastern time to sort through action in risk management standards generally and to discuss property loss guidance documents specifically; most of which derive from the technical specifics provided by ANSI accredited standards developers.  See our CALENDAR for the next monthly teleconference.
