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:
- Inspection and Maintenance of Roof Assemblies
- Gas Turbines
- Electric AC Generators
- Halocarbon and Inert Gas (Clean Agent) Fire Extinguishing Systems
- Low-Water Protection for Boilers
- USA and Canada Cost Trends (excl. Puerto Rico)
- Rest of World Cost Trends
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.
