Be prepared for the forces of nature

Though predictive science is improving, natural hazards and catastrophes 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.

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, products and services.
