The International Association of Arson Investigators (IAAI) has released a white paper that covers best practices related to health and safety, particularly as it concerns cancer prevention. The white paper was put together by the IAAI Health and Safety Committee after it was re-established in 2016 when it was deemed that health and safety practices and protocols for investigators had not been keeping pace with those of firefighters. “Though they rarely receive the recognition of firefighters, fire investigators are typically at more fires than firefighters and for a longer time,” said Jeff Pauley, chairman of the IAAI Health and Safety Committee. “The health and safety dangers of arson and fire investigators are often greater than that of firefighters.”
