Fire Extinguisher Servicing
Annual servicing and maintenance
Have you had your extinguishers serviced?
Are you responsible for the fire extinguishers’ maintenance?
Why is servicing important?
The maintenance of fire extinguishers is an absolute necessity. In the event that you require yours, it is of paramount importance that it’s in proper working order and won’t let you down when people’s safety is on the line.
Extinguishers should be serviced at a few different junctures:
- Upon delivery. This is known as the commissioning service.
- Every month. This service can be carried out on site by a designated fire safety individual.
- At least once every year by a trained professional.
