The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) has announced it has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI), according to a press release. As part of the recently approved MOU, the partnership will allow both organizations to openly collaborate and raise awareness about the connection between floor care, cleanliness and safety.  

“We found that the high caliber of education and standard development the NFSI promotes aligns well with the mission of the IICRC,” said Darrell Paulson, Chairman of the IICRC. “Through the common goal of improving floor safety, the new MoU will benefit our Certified Firms, registrants, instructors and the floor care industry as a whole.” 

Through the memorandum, the IICRC and the NFSI will maintain a working relationship which will involve the constant exchange of industry knowledge between organization executives. As part of the agreement, both organizations will also work to promote each other’s awareness and education initiatives. Each year, the NFSI and IICRC will meet to discuss the progress of the MoU to ensure it is meeting both parties’ objectives and goals. 

“We are excited to work with a globally-recognized standard-setting and certification organization like the IICRC,” said Russell Kendzior, President of the NFSI. “The partnership will help both organizations further their reach into the floor care industries and continue to improve floor safety awareness and education.”
