Be Prepared for the Forces of Nature
Though predictive science is improving, natural hazards continue to pose great threats to facilities, equipment and productivity simply because the when, where and severity of any natural hazard occurrence can change sharply, often without warning.
Advance preparation is essential to mitigating damage and business disruption.
Testing is essential preparation for prevention. See how the FM Global Natural Hazards Laboratory located at the FM Global Research Campus in Rhode Island, USA, plays a critical part in shaping our understanding.
Despite advances in data collection and mapping, the location and severity of earthquakes cannot be predicted with any certainty. But the correct preparations can make a significant difference on their impact.
Flood is one of the most costly natural hazards in the world. How can you prepare far in advance as well as make the right decisions if flooding is imminent?
Before the temperature drops, what can you do to protect both the facility and the equipment inside?
