Dedicated to Safety
Guided by Science

At Underwriters Laboratories we are dedicated to creating a safer, more secure and sustainable future. Since our founding in 1894, we’ve conducted rigorous independent research and have delivered lasting scientific contributions to improve living and working conditions throughout the world.


Today, we bring together a wide range of global experts to lead a broader conversation on safety science research and standards development. Our collaborative research settings support careful analysis of current safety data trends, and we oversee the creation of trusted standards to guide the safe and sustainable use of new and emerging technologies.


By sharing our findings broadly, Underwriters Laboratories encourages awareness and adoption of its research. When scientists, safety professionals, policymakers and industry leaders can anticipate risks to humanity and our planet, we all can work together to foster innovation and help solve some of the world’s most pressing problems.


As we step into the future, we will continue to build on our legacy: driving transformative change in pursuit of a safer and more resilient society.
