“We are pleased to be associated with a valuable resource such as the Healthy Facilities Institute,” Russell Kendzior, president of NFSI, said in a press release. “By enhancing communications to the facilities sector, HFI and NFSI can help reduce the incidence of slips and falls through promotion of the meaning and value of ANSI/NFSI standards.”
