What is FIPI?

The BC government announced, in October 2012, the creation of the Fire Inspection and Prevention Initiative (FIPI) to improve fire code compliance in primary wood product manufacturing operations that have combustible wood dust-producing processes. The outcome will be enhanced health and safety for workers in British Columbia from the reduced risk of combustible dust fire, deflagration and explosion.
