The Future of Safety Science: International Engineering and Geographic Diversity

Underwriters Laboratories

Although the need for safety is universal, sometimes the definition of safety – and how safety is determined – differs among different countries. Different geographies have different codes and installation practices, different materials in use and different training and practices. When developing safety standards for international application, it’s crucial to consider the differing needs of various geographies as well as differences in climate and culture. How is an understanding of geographic diversity incorporated into developing international safety standards? How does the standards development process differ between national and international standards? Join the conversation.
