CIODUE SPA is a founding member of FISA (Fire Security Association), an association that operates in the fire protection and safety sector and cooperates with FINCO (Federation of Construction Sector Industries), an association which is a subdivision of CONFINDUSTRIA. FISA focuses its attention on the fire protection systems and on the integration of active and passive fire protection in civil and industrial buildings. SAFETY is not regarded as a collateral factor but as a core component of the construction process, hence the need for FISA to join FINCO which is a major point of reference in the construction industry. FISA is ready and eager to work with all associations, not just those of the fire protection sector, in order to disseminate the culture of safety at work in a faster and more thorough way. By operating on several fields FISA has a greater influence on the demands of the Italian and international markets, aiming at making safety not merely as an obligation introduced by the laws but as a true, heartfelt need, not as a cost but as an investment for the future.

Vigili del Fuoco (Federation of Fire Fighters Autonomous Trade Unions). This is an extremely innovative contract, which incorporates the latest national laws (Jobs Act) and the relevant European Union rulings on labour law issues. The contract was created to meet the needs of Fire Protection Companies whose needs do not exist in other sectors, particularly for what concerns travelling staff and management of IT tools provided to the staff.
