About NFSI

Who we are

Founded in 1997 the National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI) is a 501(c)(3) non-for-profit organization 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.
