Comprehensive Services to Aid in Prevention of Slips, Trips, and Falls
Founded in 1997, the National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI) is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit foundation whose mission is: “to aid in the prevention of slips, trips, and falls through education, research and standards development.”
The NFSI provides a wide range of services including independent product testing and certification, educational training, and standards development.
In 2006, the NFSI was awarded the distinction of authoring standards for slip-and-fall prevention by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and oversees the B101 committee on slip, trip and fall prevention. In 2014, the NFSI was again recognized by ANSI as an accredited training provider and issuer of the Walkway Auditor Certificate Holder (WACH) designation.
In 2018 the NFSI was recognized by the Society for Standards Professionals (SES) and became an independent Standards Developing Organization (SDO).
