The Board of Directors of the National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI) have established a new Standards Committee which will oversee the development of all present and future NFSI walkway safety standards. This move comes in response to the recent recognition of the NFSI as an Accredited Standards Developer (ASD) by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). As the ANSI secretariat for walkway safety standards, the NFSI will soon be forwarding several of their standards to ANSI for publication.

The NFSI board of directors also approved the nomination of Mr. Thomas F. Bresnahan, CSP, to serve as the committee’s chairman. NFSI President and Founder, Russ Kendzior stated that “We are excited to have a person of Tom’s background chairing our standards committee. Tom’s years of experience and leadership will certainly play a key role as we begin to integrate our standards into the American National Standards process."

Individuals interested in serving on the NFSI’s Standards Committee are welcome to apply. For more information, please feel free to contact laurac@nfsi.org.
