Monthly Visual Inspections
You should be checking your fire extinguishers monthly, whether they are water, foam, CO2, wet chemical or powder. These checks don’t need to take up much of your time at all, but they will identify potential issues in your equipment, and ultimately save lives.
A monthly inspection compromises of a quick check of the pressure gauge, headcap pin, seal and of course, the fire extinguisher itself. The location should be checked in accordance with your fire plan, and should be either on the wall bracket or extinguisher stand and be easily visible.
Yearly Basic Service
You must have your fire extinguishers serviced every 12 months with a “basic service” and this must be done in accordance to BS 5036-6. CoMech’s Fire extinguisher technicians have the experience, training and tools to perform this service for you.
