Fire Extinguisher Checks

Ensuring your business is compliant with fire legislation is of paramount importance. Industry news is full of businesses facing legal action due to fire safety breaches, and major fires resulting in fatalities only serves to highlight the importance of being fire compliant. The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (RRO) requires businesses by law to safeguard the safety of people within the property in the event of a fire. Checking your fire safety equipment is properly maintained is just a small but significant part of ensuring compliance. Fire extinguishers should be checked monthly and if your company employs more than 5 people, the details should be recorded in a logbook for inspection by the Fire Services Inspectorate. This is in addition to annual servicing which should be carried out by a qualified engineer. The Responsible Person should also ensure that any corrective issues arising from the monthly checks are actioned and completed.

Here is a quick guide to checking fire extinguishers, which should be performed on a monthly basis.

Check the pressure

Ensure the reading of any pressure gauge or indicator fitted to an extinguisher is within operational and safety limits. In most fire extinguishers, the correct pressure will be marked in green on the gauge.

Check the tamper seal and pull pin

Extinguishers come with a tamper seal to verify they have not been interfered with. If the seal is broken then someone may have tried to use the extinguisher. If so, it’s time to replace the extinguisher. The pull pin should be in the handle. If this is missing it’s another clear sign the fire extinguisher has been tampered with or used.

Track the professional inspections

Your fire extinguisher should have a tag or label to record annual inspections. Check the extinguisher service label is not out of date and the annual schedule is being maintained. Following these simple steps every month will help ensure your fire extinguishers are operational in the event of an emergency.
