Understanding a World of Uncertainty

Put science on your side to become resilient in a world that isn’t short on surprises.

With FM Global, you recruit a team of scientists, engineers and technicians from 14 countries, holding 50 advanced degrees. You give your company access to research that can’t be replicated anywhere but the Research Campus. Within its state-of-the-art labs, scientists simulate hazards like 5-alarm fires or category-5 hurricanes, so you’ll better understand their potential effects on your company’s facilities.

Since you need to look at property loss from every angle, we go outside the lab, too. A blend of theoretical, computational and experimental  methods address tomorrow’s risk challenges. Our over a hundred  years of experience with businesses in nearly every sector allows us to ground theory in reality. And our collaborations with universities, organizations and industry groups allow us to give you unlimited expertise from which to draw.

Research and testing informs our risk management solutions and data sheets, and it helps set the high standards used to certify products as FM APPROVED.
