Fire safety investigates what happens in a fire
Every year many people are injured or even killed in fires. Fires causes economic damages counted in billions. To prevent, limit and put out fires in the best possible way reduces costs and saves lives.
The fire safety function at RISE is one of the largest of its kind in the world. We are experts in prevention, limiting and extinguising, but we also work with testing and certification of materials, constructions, vehicles and ships to make sure they live up to society demands for fire safety. Research around causes of fires and their impact on the environment, along with the development of methods and regulations in support of a fossile free society are among our most important tasks.
