The SimZone is a warehouse-sized, state-of-the-art training facility and the cornerstone of FM Global’s Centre for Property Risk Solutions. All FM Global engineers—and select clients—train at the SimZone to build on their expertise of inspecting facilities, assessing exposures, and helping our clients take active steps to reduce their risk. This unique training ensures that the FM Global engineer who comes to your facility carries the knowledge and critical thinking skills necessary to identify and manage risk. This training also grounds FM Global’s underwriting and claims process in a rigorous engineering-based approach.
Ten labs and learning areas (everything from an electrical lab to a steam and industrial heating lab) simulate property hazards, with hands-on training. Common hazards, such as fire, ignitable liquid, construction, equipment malfunction and electrical breakdown, can each be simulated in a protected environment.
FM Global is the only commercial property insurance company with this level of hands-on property loss prevention training. In fact, the SimZone isn’t just the best of its kind. It’s the only one of its kind.
The FM Global Asia SimZone is expected to be operational in early 2019 and will be the company’s first hands-on training facility in Asia, and the first of its kind on the continent.
