Insurer FM Global makes risk prevention data available at no cost

August 01, 2008 |

Commercial and industrial property insurer FM Global just made life easier with access to previously exclusive loss prevention engineering guidelines.

Thousands of pages of property protection information are now available for free to large-scale businesses, facility and risk managers, as well as the architects, consultants, and contractors who work for them. The property loss prevention data sheets may help prevent property damage and maintain business continuity due to threats posed by fire, weather conditions, and failure of electrical or mechanical equipment.

The engineering guidelines contain risk prevention information on topics ranging from building construction and fire prevention to industrial equipment maintenance and natural disaster preparedness.

FM Global says its decision to make its loss prevention data available at no cost reflects the changing risk profiles of its clients around the world, especially the increasing interdependence of businesses brought about as a result of globalization and technology.

“Companies are now so intertwined and geographically dispersed, that to help them reduce risk and prevent loss, it's beneficial to make our intellectual property widely accessible,” says Tom Lawson, FM Global's senior vice president of engineering and research. “We feel this complete access to our engineering recommendations can be invaluable to helping businesses manage the evolving risk environment in this increasingly interconnected world.”
