Underwriter Laboratories is one of a handful of companies that are approved to perform safety testing in the United States. It’s no surprise that technology being brought to the fire industry needs to be rigorously tested to ensure it is safe to use. Another thing Underwriter Laboratories does is test innovations before they go to market to ensure they are worth the cost of adopting. If not, Underwriter Laboratories works with companies to find ways to improve the product. Underwriter Laboratories tests these technologies and provides a line of communication to the companies and members in the fire industry.
